In the July/August issue of Paper money there is an article by Joseph Boling on Operation Bernhard notes that indicates that 100 pound notes were counterfeited. Burke, in his book, says hat he never saw a Bernhard 100 and the Pam-West British notes website shows only one with a question mark indicating that there is some question as to its authenticity. Does anyone have one? I have managed to collect a set of signature/denomination notes including the Mahon 10 pound and have never found anyone that has seen one or has one. If you have one please post a picture or send me an e-mail at email@example.com. As an aside I am also interested in finding one of the "Memorandum of Detention" pictured in Burkes book. Thanks!
