Is a smoked fish without her majesty worth three old pence? (5)

I suspect this is wrong, but I like the reasoning so I'll give it a go anyway.

The answers I'm suggesting is Kipps.

Smoked fish could be kippers - take away her majesty (er) and that leaves Kipps - the novel which was the basis of the musical 'Half A Sixpence' which could be the three old pence mentioned in the clue.
