    In 1943 the counterfeits start lapping at the Old Lady's skirts, and even British spies start bringing them home. The Bank's inner circle puts nothing on paper, even though its officials believe that no one can copy their notes. In Switzerland , the pounds start arriving in bulk and the Swiss complain to the Bank of England, to no avail.

  6. The Money Launderers
  7. Dollars--and the Final Dump
  8. "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie"
