Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine with all the details being well preserved. This is an attractive note with evidence of handling and minor wear. The note has three vertical folds, a horizontal fold, and general wrinkling, but appears to have been flattened. The note is soiled and has a few small and light stains. The note retains some of its original stiffness and original crispiness. The note has no tears or splits and the edges have some wear and nicks especially at the end of the central vertical fold. The corners are intact with some bumps and rounding. The colors are still vivid and the design is well preserved. The note has no pinholes, no graffiti, and no tears and no splits. Note that the banknote does not look as purple in color as the scan suggest but is still beautiful and shows its colors nicely. A nice note to add to your collection.
