Question
I have some paper money a WWII vet gave me that he said was printed by the U.S. govt for use in the Japanese internment camps. Have any info on history or value of this money?

Answer
Well, the history is just that... the Japanese gov't printed this money to circulate in prison camps in the pacific theatre.

The money tends to have little value because it's rather common and isn't particularly ornate. A search of eBay should come up with many examples for each note you have
