Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice about uncirculated or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has no folds, no creases, no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The corners are fully squared and intact. It retains all of its original crispiness, stiffness, and sheen. The edges of the note are intact and show no signs of roughness. The note has a few minor signs of wrinkling, which is the main reason we grade the note as AU instead of UNC. These are most likely due to handling and not due to circulation. Just a great piece to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
