Not The Free Tenners

In For A Penny, In For A Pound

They're laughing all the way to the bank, er, blank. English ten pound notes have been selling on eBay for £260. The tenners are unique because they're blank on one side. The Bank of England accidentally circulated up to 40 of the one-sided notes, which it says still count as legal tender. Chris Phillips, 27, of South Shields, got one of the notes when he went to a cash-point. He said: "They're selling for crazy money."

FOOTNOTE: The Blank of England.

It seems to me that they are specially made "Hell Bank Notes."

(For those unfamiliar with the term, HBN is an afterlife monetary paper offering used in traditional Chinese ancestor veneration.)
