Blank tenners sell for hundreds

Date 22 Oct 2007

Ten pound notes are selling on eBay for £260. The tenners are blank on one side, reports the Mirror. The Bank of England accidentally circulated about 40 of the one-sided notes, which it says still count as legal tender.

Chris Phillips of South Shields got one of the notes when he went to a cash-point. He said: "They're selling for crazy money."

    There's no image with it, but the seller's put a "buy it now" price of £500. Rather hopeful, I reckon...

    Find it here

    I found it but with no picture and I agree it's worth £500 and neither can anyone else.
