Condition: For international buyers, please note that US postal rates for overseas shipping using first class are very high and we are unable to change them. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this banknote as very fine with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and a horizontal fold. The note is soiled but has no objectionable stains. It still retains some stiffness and has no tears or splits. The note shows some wear and roughness along the edges with minor nicks at the ends of the folds. The corners have wear, minor rounding, some creasing but no losses. The note has a dark line parallel to the right edge on the back which looks like a fold or crease, but is not obvious on the front leading us to thing the note may have been hinged, but we do not see residue of glue, so we are not certain. Be that as it may, this is a nice note to add to your collection. Please see the scan for additional condition information.
