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 extremely fine or better. The note is lightly soiled and has a few light stains within the margins. It also has some light blue coloration within the margins. It has several three light vertical folds but we are unable to identify horizontal folds. The note is intact with no tears or splits. It has no pinholes, no graffiti, and no objectionable stains (it does have a few minor light stains). The corners are intact and squared with minimum rounding, if any. The corners have a minor small crease or two but no major bumps or observable folds. The edges show very minor roughness if any. A nice example of this scarce note to add to your collection. Please see the photos for additional condition information.
