Condition: I would grade this banknote as a choice very fine or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note shows light circulation with a central vertical fold that is a bit soiled on the reverse and two additional light vertical folds flanking it. The note has no appreciable creasing or wrinkling. The paper is relatively clean with some light darkening along the edges. It does have a couple of light stains on the back. The corners have some rounding and minor bumps. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. The edges are intact with no obvious roughness, no tears, or nicks in the border area. The colors of the note are bright, clear and without fading. The note has no graffiti, no tears, no splits, no pinholes, and no large objectionable stains. Nice note to add to your collection, which verges on being extremely fine if not for the soiled central vertical fold on the back. Please carefully view the scans for additional condition information.
