Condition: I would grade this banknote as a good apparent uncirculated or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has no folds, no wrinkling, no pinholes, no graffiti, and no tears or splits. It has no roughness along the edges and its corners are fully squared with no observable rounding. It does have what looks like a spot of light soiling at the bottom right corner of the back. This, if indeed soiling, is due to handling as opposed to circulation. It is light and very difficult to visualize and is mentioned here for completeness. Finally, because of a customer returning it and claiming it has been processed? (which we are unable to ascertain) we are grading the note as apparent uncirculated instead of straight uncirculated. Be that as it may, the note appears to have never been circulated and retains all of its original stiffness and crispiness. The colors are vivid and bright. A nice and attractive note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
