Pick Number: Pick number S132a.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as crisp uncirculated and is very nicely embossed. The banknote has all of its details very well preserved. It has no folds and no creases. The note is clean and has no stains. It has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. It is intact but was badly cropped along the top edge showing uneven edge. This happened during the cutting of the sheets and is original to making process of the note. Be that as it may, it is still well margined with fully squared and intact corners. It retains all of its original stiffness, crispiness, and sheen. A nice note to add to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
