The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and sheen. Its corners are squared with minimum rounding but have bumps and light creases near the bottom right corner. The note has no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. The note shows no signs of roughness along the edges and shows no losses. A nice-looking example of this scarce note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
