Condition: For international buyers, please note that new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change. Please review shipping charges to your location before making your purchase. I would grade this banknote as a crisp extremely fine or much better note with all the details being very well preserved. The note has one light central vertical fold but no horizontal folds and no wrinkling. The note has minor bumps at the top and bottom edges at the ends of the fold. It also has two pinholes below the 1000 in the top right corner of the front. Other than that the note retains most of its original crispiness and stiffness. The corners are intact and fully squared. The edges are intact and have no observable roughness, except as mentioned above. The note is clean, with no graffiti, no stains, and no splits or tears. This is a very attractive note, clean and bright with vivid colors, which would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
