Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has three vertical folds but no horizontal folds. It has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The note is clean with very light soiling and has no stains. The edges are intact with minimum roughness if any. The corners are nicely squared with minimum rounding if any. The note still retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. A beautiful note to add to your collection.
