Condition: I would grade this rather nice note as a choice very fine or much better. The note is lightly soiled and has some staining. The note is crisp and retains most if not all of its original stiffness and crispiness. It has a few light vertical folds but no tears or splits. The edges are intact showing minimum wear. The corners are intact and squared with minimum rounding if any. The note has no graffiti and no pinholes. Again, the note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. Its colors are vivid and show no fading. All in all an extremely nice looking example of this great historic note, which would make a great addition to your collection.
