Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine with all the details being still well preserved. The note has vertical folds, horizontal folds, and some general wrinkling. It is soiled and has stains with a small brown circle to the left of the King's portrait that goes through and can be seen on the back. The note has a few creases, roughness along the edges, and some losses especially on the top edge in the middle. The corners are intact but are rounded and have bumps. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. A nice banknote worthy of a spot in your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
