The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no splits, and no tears. The corners are nicely squared and intact with minimum rounding, but has a few minor bumps and fold marks. The edges are intact with no observable roughness. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. It colors are vivid and show no fading.
