In my opinion, when in doubt it's always better to err on the safe side and get a new passport. Last thing you want to happen is to get bounced back at immigration checks due to a damaged passport. Quoting from my other answer on the topic: I checked the definitions of damaged passports and there seems to be a common denominator across countries. A ...

There are no border/immigration checks between Scotland and England since, at the time of writing, they're part of the same country - United Kingdom.

I think @uncovery is right. For 200USD customs would not ask for any proof. I carry USDs all the time. I have never been asked to show any proof whatsoever. Customs only ask when it exceeds $5,000 or in some countries $10,000.

Since you withdrew it from an ATM the exchange has been done by your bank, which is authorized to do that. The question is rather if the customs offices on departure will ask you for a proof of that.
