The banknote is printed in black over a yellow and brown underprint. The front depicts the image of a seated female reading (Literature) to the left and the portrait of M.

Date: September 1 1909.

Printer: American Bank Note Company of New York.

Size: The banknote measures ~6 1/8" by ~2 3/4". Pick Number: S257c.

Condition: I would grade this note as nice extremely fine or better. The note may have been lightly flattened. It retains quite a bit of stiffness and crispiness. It is lightly soiled and the red seal on the front has bled onto the back. The front appears to show lines suggesting folds, which are not seen on the back and hence our suggestion that the note may have been flattened. The corners are intact with rounding, the edges are intact and do not show appreciable roughness. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears and no splits. A nice note to add to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
