Mandrin receiving euros from bank teller 21. Mid of shredded franc notes wrapped in plastic with Bank of France Fiduciary Activities General Director, Henri Jullien, behind them 22. SOUNDBITE (French) Henri Jullien, General Director, Bank of France Fiduciary Activities: "It has been ten years that we've said that these bills won't be reimbursable for more than ten years. Since September we have done a lot of publicity. We will have around 50 to 60 (m) million bank notes reimbursed so the French state will recoup 550 (m) million euro (723 (m) million US dollars)." 23. Shredded franc notes wrapped in plastic STORYLINE: It's time to bid adieu to the franc. Six centuries after the first one was minted and a decade after they went out of circulation, the last French francs are being exchanged for euros, severing France's final link to its former national currency. The Bank of France set a deadline of the close of business Friday for French savers to exchange whatever leftover franc notes they've kept stacked away in drawers or under mattresses, whether held onto intentionally as souvenirs or simply forgotten about. The euro replaced the franc in wallets and purses in January 2002, but the central bank has continued to accept francs in exchange for euros until now. The franc's end comes as the euro suffers the worst crisis since its creation, and the once-taboo question of a eurozone break-up is now front page fodder. The euro is a daily reminder to more than 330 (m) million Europeans who use it of the dismal state of the economy in the 17-nation eurozone. While few Europeans are prepared to scrap the euro - in part because they fear a chaotic collapse more than the current muddle - some are nostalgic for the money they counted on before it arrived. Retiree Micheline Blanc, for example, says life was better and cheaper when the French franc was in circulation.
