Lost And Pound

But What'll It Buy Me, Guv?

A one million pound banknote, believed to be one of only two in existence, is expected to fetch only £40,000 (about $80,000) at auction. The eight-inch-wide green note, which dates back to 1948, is no longer legal tender. It was issued by the Treasury in connection with the Marshall Aid Plan to pump US money into Europe after World War II.

FOOTNOTE: One in a million.

Only 40 thousand pounds? That must have been some crash diet1

I wish I had £40K hanging around! That will one day be worth mega millions! Whoever buys that is onto something.
