Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice extremely fine or even about uncirculated. The note is clean and has no stains. It is intact with no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. The only issue we see is some light wrinkling or folds along the right margin, which we believe are an artifact of the manufacturing process as opposed to being because of circulation. A great example of a rare banknote that is difficult to find. Please see scans for additional condition information.
