1 million pounds banknote auctioned for 78 thousand pounds





A £1m Treasury note has fetched £78,300, twice the expected price, at an auction in London.

The note, numbered 000008, was issued after World War II in connection with the Marshall Aid Plan.

The Marshall plan was a programme of funding given to Western Europe by the United States to help with recovery after the 1939-45 conflict.

Another £1,000,000 note numbered 000007 was sold for £8,000 in 1977, through a private sale.
