Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice about uncirculated with detail or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The detail being an ink stamp on the back of the note and ink stains on the front from another stamped note, which was on top of it when the note was stamped. The note is intact and has no tears or splits. It has no folds or creases and is clean with no observable stains (other than the ink stains mentioned above). The note has no pinholes and no graffiti. The corners are intact and squared with one bump to the bottom right corner (the reason we are not grading a the note as Uncirculated). The note retains its original stiffness, sheen and crispiness. Its edges are intact and do not show roughness. A nice rare note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
