Sorry to say there are already those ahead of you selling it.... if you buy, make sure its current, article quotes the lira... but I thought it was the syrian pound... which might be the same thing .. and in any case, the last batch was created in 2010 (I think)


Assad, seems to be on  top of those waskely wabbits who might try profiting  at the end of the day from economic upheaval... He early last month forbid / banned the use of any foreign currency (or precious metals), to the point of going to jail if one used anything other than the Syrian lira.... Sentences could be 6 months to 10 years... guess that's one way to prevent dollarization of one's currency and then de dollarizing it... and then the entire frickin squirrel fest that follows....

THe goal of this move is of course to control the exchange rate...
