Condition: I would grade the note as apparent crisp uncirculated. The note has no folds, no creases, no tears, no splits, no graffiti, no stains, and no soiling. The note has no graffiti, and its edges are intact with no roughness. Its corners are intact, with no bumps and are fully squared. It retains its stiffness, crispiness, and sheen. The only issue we see is two pinholes near the left edge of the front and this is the reason we grade the note Apparent Crisp Uncirculated instead of just Crisp Uncirculated. A nice and very desirable note, which would make a nice addition to your collection. Please see scans for additional condition information.
