    Hello Dr DeWeaver,
    I have been hearing that there could be a Revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar some time in 2010. Is there any truth to this? And if it is
    true, could the RV or Redominaiton make the value of the Dinar anywhere from .86 to over $3 which was as one time, I heard, the value of the Kuwaiti Dinar? Please help me out on this issue and send me an email if you don't mind. Thank you for your time.

    Is an Revalue of the IQD something that will happen soon or will there be a reset back to the previous value prior to the wars?

    Can you provide your best quess as to how the removel of the zeros will happen?

    My question is because of the outpouring of information from Iraq and others that a revalue is in the works and if so any idea of when such might happen as mostly if one reads through all the propaganda and half-truths, and innuendos, and rehashed resubmitted articles like they are brand new ..One might be able to decipher and again the only real question is will there be a revalue before October 31,2010 and if not in October then by the end of 2010.

    Thank You for Your time ..any news will help either bad or good !!!
