Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice about extremely fine with all the details being well preserved. The note has one distinct horizontal fold. It also a crease at the top right corner. The note retains most of its original stiffness and crispiness. The colors are vivid and bright. The corners are intact with minimum rounding, if any. The edges are intact and show minimum wear, if any. The note has no tears or splits The only thing we see is one pinhole in the center of the top margin, where someone must have had the note pinned to a board sometime in the past. This is the main reason we grade it as about extremely fine instead of extremely fine or better. Other than the pinhole the note is problem free and has honest original wear and is in an original circulated condition. The note would make a great addition to your collection of Australian banknotes. Please see photo for additional condition information.
