ONE HUNDRED TRILLION DOLLARS FOR ONLY £2.49

One hundred trillion dollarsOk, they may be from Zimbabwe, but they make a cracking headline. I just happened to recently come across this listing on eBay UK while searching for some Chinese slimming tea (I am beginning to hear the flab talking to me while I sleep, really).

Have a look for yourself. Click the eBay link below to go to an active listing of this single official banknote from Zimbabwe.
