Condition: I would grade the banknote as a nice extremely fine or much better with all the details being very well preserved and its colors being vivid and un-faded. The note has light vertical folds which are difficult to see but are there. Its corners are intact and squared with minimum rounding and with several bumps obvious at the tip right corner. The note has no tears, no splits, and no wrinkling. It is clean with no observable soiling or stains. It has no pinholes and no graffiti. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness, sheen, and crispiness. Please see the photos for additional condition information.
