    CBI web site modifications

    In the last few days the CBI web site has posted a revised pictorial view of all the Dinar currency officially blessed to be in circulation.

    They have now super imposed a watermark type script diagonally over each pictorial of each currency with the word "specimen" on all currency on display.

    And some sharp eyes have now seen a second change within the last few days of this new image.

    As if you look closely at the lower left bottom corner of each image you will see a "specimen serial number", this was the second recent revision.

    Does this indicate a forward preemptive move by the CBI for future verification processing, if/when something should suddenly change? as overseas banks, not familiar with this currency, begin to see a flood of peeps looking to cash these in? yes?

    ok now thinking this through more now, and looking at what they have posted, I think its safe to make some further "assumptions" based on what they have now presented to us.

    1. its apparent they have updated the web site with "specimen" category currency on display
    2. this would have a purpose for currency verification, but its not enough for a bank teller to just be able to view an image for verification purposes
    3. when you go to a domestic bank and present currency, lets say you need quarters for the laundry, and ask the teller for $100 in quarters using one single $100 USD bill, the bank teller has standard instructions to verify authenticity. They go thru a quick progression of that process, look for certain markers, watermark, feel paper quality, embedded strip, and quality. My guess is by law each bank may be required to have a "bench mark" currency in house to physically compare submitted suspicious bills. This would apply to many/all currencies not just the IQD. They simply would not just go look at a image off a web site if there was an issue.
    4. The CBI images display serial numbers of each "specimen" shown, and they don't display s/n 0001. The 2013 issue 10k Dinar note shows it s/n 1778, so its safe to assume there are at least 1,778 of them.
    5. They all would need to be controlled, and maintained as primo master copies
    6. Each bank in Iraq certainly would need one of each, in a set.
    7. Any other financial institution (bank) that intends to negotiate this currency would also need one set of each "specimen", and that number could be astronomical.
