Regarding the comments on the coming of polymer banknotes to Canada, Joe Boling writes:

I have in hand some current Vietnamese polymer notes that are truly tatty - the worst condition polymer pieces I have ever seen - bordering on illegible. Well-circulated polymer can look just as bad as well-circulated paper.
