Iraqi Currency Hot On EBay

from the eBay-as-a-measure-of-pop-culture dept

John writes “Yet another sign of eBay’s growing power as a way to measure what our culture is talking about. According to this article, the hot item on eBay these days is Iraqi currency. This is clearly for the collectors out there, and not anyone expecting to use the money in Iraq – as the bills are going for much much more than they’re actually worth – sometimes over a thousand times their face value. Collecting experts, though, say the money (even as a collector’s item) is worth little, because there’s so much of it out there. “
