I think it's a nice peace of currency and kinda neat with all the built in fraud prevention measures. I originally thought it would be made out of polymer like other countries are doing. I'd like to hear your guys thoughts and would it be smart to get a fresh uncirculated one and put it away?

I have one fresh out of a fed pack in plastic put away, for absolutely no reason.

There has been talk of switching over to polymer bills. The company that supplies the bill paper to the BEP is located in my state and our state senator has been lobbying hard against the switch, to save the company and jobs.

I suspect our next redesign will be on polymer. It just makes sense. Harder to counterfeit and the notes last about 3 times as long.

i do not think our next redesign will be on polymer simply because our currency is to well know and is the basis of many economies and is quite familiar. if we were to redo it in polymer the faith in the dollar would be lost and it would be worthless. people like the "paper" bill and would lose faith in it if it were changed.

Hopefully the redesign will be printed in polymer, like the countries of Australia, Canada, and Vietnam. I live in close proximity with Canada, and their polymer banknotes pass through my hands quite often, and are very interesting. If the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing adapts to start producing our notes with this composition of plastic solutions, counterfeiting would occur less often, and the money would carry less filth. Since our money is as dirty as a toilet seat, polymer notes would be an option that would stunt the spreading of germs via medium of exchange.

If you can spare the $100 to have sitting around, I would. I found a * in 2009A thats arguably in new condition, along with a 222222 in the S/N and a radar that are sitting aside in this Series (denom). Probably not worth more than $100 but think of its 1996 counterpart when it came out. Don't see many of those new.

Based on the feel of this bill it seems slightly thinner than the last design. With the ease of being able to pull the paper off the large blue strip, I'll be curious to see if these will last longer than 1996-2006A bills.

It sounds like the next bill to be redesigned is the $10 and their attempts will be to include a texture feel to identify the denomination so who knows if polymer will be needed to satisfy the need. I could see it going one way or the other.

The faith in the dollar likely hangs in the balance of other things besides its physical appearance...otherwise the recent switch of the colorized bills would have had an influence. One could argue more faith in this design due to its better features....
