Condition: I would grade this banknote as a choice extremely fine or better. The note has all of its details very well preserved. The note has a very attractive appearance, with signs of light handling. The note has a light vertical fold in the center and signs of handling displayed as light short folds in a couple of spots. The note is also lightly soiled and has a few light stains mainly around the corners and the edges. Other than that the note is clean, bright and retains quite a bit of its original stiffness, crispiness, and sheen. The corners are intact and nicely squared with the slightest evidence of rounding if any and a few minor bumps. The edges are intact and show no wear. The note has no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, no splits, and no repairs. This is a nice piece in extremely fine condition and would make a great addition to your collection.
