The note has all of its details well preserved. The note has no observable folds but has several bumps and creases. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness, crispiness and sheen. Its corners are squared and have minimum rounding if any. The top right corner appears to have been stuck to something and when it was removed it lost part of the top edge or the top edge had to be trimmed and the paper split with a light surface layer, which is still attached to the note, separated from the note. This is the main reason we are grading the note as apparent XF instead of XF or better. Otherwise the note is clean with no stains, no pinholes, no graffiti and no tears. Please see photo for additional condition information.
