On Sept 25, 1999 I recieved another manilla envelope with
some interesting looking stamps on it.
Inside the envelope was a pretty cool looking coin, enclosed in a little plastic coin carrying slip which also contained a word in Hebrew.
It also contained a very cool looking marble. Below are pictures and analysis:

While it's dated 1945, the Mexican mint struck them with that date for years. It's worth its weight as gold. Gold's $275 an ounce right now and climbing up from $225 at the beginning of the month, before the European central banks decided to limited gold sales for the next few years. I don't remember exactly what your coins weighs - not a lot. You'r coin's worth on the order of $20 to $30. I'll check tonight and let you know tomorrow. Any coin dealer will buy it for bullion. It's a neat coin.
Anybody know Hebrew? I'm sure I probably scanned this upside down and backwards, too...
From ashton: Also, in the package of 9/25/99, the Hebrew word (which Bryan did a great job of scanning right side up :-) is mem-lamed-kaph-vav-tob ... plural feminine of "melek", and means "queens" (melek, and other words derived from this three-letter-root, mean "king", "kingdom", etc).
And an update from ashton, later on... > > > Orphanage: > > > Send a picture of the Hebrew word (written on blue paper) to > > > someone who knows Kabbalah.

You should, however, SCAN samples of the currency, the coin AND ESPECIALLY, the Hebrew that accompanied the coin. The point of the foregoing will become evident as Time passes. name=Your multitude of friends
Incidentally, I've never cashed anything in that has been sent to me, even the foreign currencies I was sent in July. Also see here...
