The note has a light horizontal fold that is difficult to see, but is there. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no splits, and no tears. The corners are intact with minimum rounding, but has a few minor bumps and fold marks. The edges are intact with minimum roughness if any. The note retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. It 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. Please see photo for additional condition information.
