The note has vertical folds and a horizontal fold. The note is soiled with some staining. It has graffiti both on the front and the back. The note has no tears and no splits, it has no pinholes and its edges are mostly intact with minor roughness. Its corners are intact but has distinct rounding and minor bumping as well as some light staining. The note still retains some of its original stiffness. It is in a well circulated original state. The note is well margined and has vivid colors. A great looking scarce note, which would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
