10K Note:
Front - Abu Ali Hasan Ibn al-Haitham (known as Alhazen to medieval scholars in the West), born Basrah in 965 CE. His most important work - although he wrote some 200 books - is held to be a seven volume series on optics Kitab al-Manazir, in which he gives the first correct explanation of vision, showing that light is reflected from an object into the eye. He is said to have ‘invented’ the camera obscura. Also, an eminent physicist and mathematician he developed analytical geometry by establishing linkage between algebra and geometry. Alhazen’s work was translated into Latin, and greatly influenced European scientific thought.
Back - Hadba Minaret, at the Great Nurid Mosque, Mosul, built 1172 CE by Nurridin Zangi, the then Turkish ruler. The 59m-high minaret leans 8 feet off the perpendicular. That is how it earned its Arabic name Al-Hadba (‘the humped’).

Q: Why do you ask for a copy of a driver's license or other information on certain orders?
A: As a registered MSB (Money Services Bureau) we are given guidelines from the US Treasury Department regarding transactions where secured funds are involved (cashier's checks or money orders). The treasury regards these transactions as cash transactions. These rules were set up to identify people who might be laundering money. It is known as the "know your customer" rule outlined under the Patriot Act Compliance guidelines. The information that we collect is not shared with anyone, but must be available in the event that we are audited. We use the guidelines given to us to determine when a driver's license is required. We are not at liberty to discuss what those guidelines are. Any further questions should be forwarded to the main office for further explanation. Please note that the fax of the driver's license must be legible before we will ship the order. In an effort to save time we suggest the customer enlarge the license image before faxing, or use our preferred method of scanning and e-mailing to

Q: What does it mean when I see people say the Iraqi Dinar will “reval”?
A: It is common on many forums to see people looking for information like “when will the Dinar reval." You are likely seeing a person referring to the possibility that there will be a change to the current exchange rate of the Dinar. This is a common question that we hear from customers and others interested in exchanging US Dollars for the Dinar, but it is not possible for us to know or truly predict a change in the exchange rate. We simply offer a service that allows you buy and sell Iraqi Dinar in exchange for the US Dollar. We would encourage you to seek help from a financial adviser if you are looking for investment advice.
