The banknote is pink or orange in color, showing the head of queen Elizabeth to the left and king Albert's head/bust to the right of the front. The front is written in Flemish and shows the image of a woman holding a crown and fruit in the center and a white circle where the water mark can be found on top of her.

Condition: I would grade this banknote as a good very fine or better with all the details being well preserved. The note has many creases both vertical and horizontal, is lightly soiled but is not stained, but has no pinholes. It does have some minor and very small splits to the edge around the ends of the central crease. These are difficult to ascertain, but appear to be there. The corners are mostly intact with minimal rounding, but are creased. Please see photo for additional condition information.
