Condition: I would grade this banknote as an apparent extremely fine or better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has several light folds and a couple of creases. It does also have some minor light wrinkling along the top edge. The note is clean with no stains, no graffiti, and no pinholes. Its corners are intact with minimum rounding. The top edge has one small and short tear (~1/8") in the margin. This is the reason we grade the note as apparent XF instead of straight XF. The note has no additional tears, no repairs, and no splits. The note retains quite a bit of its original crispiness, stiffness and sheen. A very nice note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
