Some new Polymer notes join my collection

I can't believe I have not yet posted in 2016. I thought I had done a OFEC post but apparently I had not.

I actually have some new additions to share, which doesn't really happen all that often. I got a set of 8 uncirculated polymer notes for Christmas 2015 and I just finally got them scanned. I really like the new polymer notes, they have a unique feel and the detail seems to be crisper than on paper notes.

All except Nigeria are countries that did not appear in my currency collection, I believe, and at least one is totally new, with no coins either. (Bangladesh). I am not able to identify the country of origin for one of them yet. I should be able to with a little research but I have been so busy with other things I have not had a chance to do so yet.

I scanned them all with a piece of black construction paper behind them so the security windows show in the scan.

This last one is the one I'm not sure on. The Rupees lead me to think of India but I believe there are other countries that use rupees as well. I must do more research.
