Bangladesh 5 taka 2006 & 2008

The 2008 type has a different composition (magnetic steel, ferritic) than the 2006 (non-magnetic steel, austenite).

Also, design changes are obvious when looking at both types:

-Different clouds and bridge pillars
-Much smaller bengali writings and numerals

Only Schön (and not Krause) distinguishes between them. 2006 type is KM#26 for Krause. 2008 will be a different KM.
