    I am just wondering, my friend sent me 250 dinars, do you know how much US dollars that is worth?

    odd that it appears that 250 dinar is around $837, can you catually cash them in though? It seems odd that the iraqi currency is so high. and in pounds it is £486 ! very odd.

    If it is in the old Saddam-style bills then I would hang on to them, could be of value to collectors one day.

    I have no idea how he came across them. I think the are actually distributed to the soldiers. If I remember corectly he said he gets them and used them for buying things at local iraqi sandwhich shops and the like. I did not get the impression that he stole them. If he did that would be wrong.
