From the latest info (May 31) on the US Financial Management Service website:

$1.00 = IRAQ-DINAR 1421.0000

But my math totally sux0rs, so one dinar would be what, about 14ยข?

I have some Bulgarian and Napalese money I got out of a cereal box in the early 90's. No joke. Back around '90 or '91 Cookie Crisp had low value foreign currency as the prize in the box. If I can find it when I get home, I'll scan and post them.

I'm visiting my mom for a few days and rememebred that she has a Confederate $20 bill I framed and gave to her as a present several years ago (she's a bigtime Civil War buff). This gave me a good chance to try the camera in my new T610:

and no...$1/D1421 = 1/14.21 cents.....as in it takes 14.21 dinar to equal 1 cent

Yeah, I knew as I was typing it that I was probably dividing bass ackwards. My math totally sucks to begin with, but then no sleep in two days doesn't help either. Thanks for doin' the math for me. ;)

Yes, that be JD.

I found it in an antique store back in '99 and bought it for $25. I framed it and gave it to my mom, since she's a bit of a Civil War historian (published researcher, Master's thesis on the Massachusetts 55th black regiment).

When I framed it I cut a rectangle out of the back of the matte so you can flip it over and read the back. I was going to post pictures of that too, but the way it's framed you really can't see much in a pic.
