Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade the banknote as very fine or better. It retains quite a bit of its stiffness and crispiness. The note is lightly soiled and has a few light stains within the margins, including a light blue ink stain in the right margin. It has several vertical folds including a heavy central one with soiling along the fold on the back and a horizontal fold. The note has a small tear (~1/8" long on the top edge about 1 3/4" to the left of the right top corner. Other than that the edges have some minor roughness at the ends of the folds. The corners are mostly intact with some minor rounding and a few bumps and creases. The note has no pinholes and no graffiti. A nice example of this scarce note to add to your collection. Please see the photos for additional condition information.
