Do barclay visa debit cards have an issue number and if so where on the card do you find it?

Issue numbers are typically located in front of the card, and normally it is indicated as ‘01′ unless you have had your card replaced at any time.

But on a Barclays debit card, it is not embossed. For details, contact Barclays on 0800 151 0900 (in the UK) ; +44 1604 230 230 (outside the UK) or 0333 200 9090 (from a mobile). You may also call Telephone Banking (if you’re registered) on 0345 734 5345.

If you check the card face of the Barclays debit card, what you see is just the 16-digit number which represents the card issuer and your specific account number. On the back side of the card is the CVV2 number, or security code number. The last three digit number on the signature strip is used by merchants as a way to verify that the cardholder is present at the purchase.

According to sources, Visa's tend not to have an issue number; they're typically reserved for Switch Maestro and Visa Electron.
