In 1942, S.S. Major Walter Bernhard Kruger assembled a group of Jewish artists, engravers, printers, and technicians in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in order to counterfeit British paper money. The operation was massive in its scope. Nearly nine million notes were printed, totaling more than £130 million. While the Germans could not effectively introduce the notes into circulation en masse, they were nonetheless effective in stoking fears about the British money supply due to their impressive quality. Britannia is at upper left, and the denomination guilloche at lower left. Most of the counterfeits seen today are in mid-grade, and this example is a bright and pleasing representative from this historic narrative. The story of these notes is told in the movie, The Counterfeiters.

Asking my cost from several years ago on these. They're an amazing piece of history, but I still do not want to profit given the history of the notes. Identical note and grade just sold for $552 in Newman HERE.
