Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping for first class shipments are generally very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. So please check the shipping cost to your location before bidding. I would grade this banknote as a crisp extremely fine to almost or about uncirculated with all the details being well preserved. The note has minor signs of handling that are reflected in the form of light partial fold and a couple of additional bumps here and there. However, these are minor and hardly noticeable. The note has minor soiling and some darkening at the corners. The note has no creases, tears, pinholes or graffiti. The corners are squared and sharp with minimum rounding if any. The edges are intact with no roughness. A beautiful banknote worthy of a spot in your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
