Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping for first class shipments are generally very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. So please check the shipping cost to your location before bidding. I would grade this banknote as good fine or much better with all of its details being very well preserved. The note has several vertical folds, light wrinkling and minor general soiling and minimum staining. The note retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. The edges of the note show roughness and minor nicks throughout especially at the end of the folds. The note has no tears, splits, graffiti, or pinholes. It is intact with the corners having minor rounding, folds, and creases. Just a great looking banknote to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
