Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine or better with signs of circulation. The note has many vertical folds, a horizontal fold, and general wrinkling. The note is soiled and has stains especially on the back. The note has no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. Its edges are intact but show some roughness especially at the ends of the folds. The corners are intact with bumps and some rounding. The note still retains some of its original stiffness and its colors are vivid with no appreciable fading. This is a nice looking banknote which would make a great addition to your collection. Please see the photos for additional condition information.
