I would grade this banknote as extremely fine or much better with all the details being extremely well preserved. The note is clean with minor soiling along the edges but has no stains. The note retains most of its original sheen, stiffness, and crispiness. It has no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. Its corners are squared with minimum rounding. The note has a spot in the center of both the top and bottom edge where it shows minor roughness at the ends of a light central vertical fold. The note shows beautiful embossing and is just great looking and in great condition. A great note worthy of a spot in your collection. Please see the scans for additional condition information.
