Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade the banknote as a good very fine or better. The note is lightly soiled, has a horizontal crease, several vertical folds, as well as several angled folds. The corners are intact but show rounding and some bumps. The note is intact with no repairs, no tears or splits. It has no pinholes, no graffiti, and no objectionable stains. The edges show very minor roughness if any mostly at the ends of the folds. A nice example of this scarce note to add to your collection. Please see the scans for additional condition information.
