    Canada- Medicine Hat, AB Internment Camp 132 POW Canteen 5¢, 10¢, 50¢, $1 ND (ca. 1943-45)
    A pleasing group of P.O.W. Canteen money which was used at the camp located at Medicine Hat. This site opened in 1943 and was supposedly capable of holding 12,000 prisoners. Many higher ranking German officers were held here. Two prisoners were murdered at the hands of fellow detainees for speaking out against Nazism and Hitler. Many inmates settled in and around the area after developing close ties with farming families which they helped while working as POWs on their local farms. The grades of many of these small tickets are favorable. Here is the breakdown: 5¢ PCGS Choice New 63PPQ, 10¢ PCGS Apparent Extremely Fine 45, 50¢ PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ, $1 PCGS New 62.
