I think the Operation Bernhard forgeries that occasionally come up for auction are terrific- the remaining evidence of a Nazi plot to compromise the British economy by flooding it with fake money. It shows wonderfully how there's more to war than just fighting! These forged examples are valued at £150-250 from Tennants Auctioneers. Operation Bernhard was recently the subject of the Oscar-winning Austrian film, The Counterfeiters.
