Plastic money

#1 by Sheldonboy , Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:12 pm

This idea of plastic money isn't knew, over 30 years ago when I was working at wiggins Teape Paper we used to handle "Plastic Paper" called Tyvek, it was made in America by Dupont. They did a test for jungle tribes to introduce money to them. First of course they used paper and the first thing the tribesmen did was to eat it and that is how plastic money came about, also using Tuftex ink the notes are virtually indestructible.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity,
