I would grade this banknote as very fine or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has two vertical folds. It is lightly soiled with some light staining along the folds on the back. The paper of the note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. Its corners are intact, well squared, with minimum rounding. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The edges show minimum roughness at the ends of the folds. A beautiful note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
