Condition: I would grade this banknote as nice extremely fine to about uncirculated or much better. The banknote is clean and has no stains. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The edges are intact and show no roughness. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness, sheen and crispiness. The note has no folds and no wrinkling. The corners are intact with no folds but have minor bumps and minor rounding and the note itself has some waviness, a small bump on the top edge, and a light partial fold or more pronounced waviness. These issues are the main reason we grade the note as XF instead of a straight AU. The colors of the note are clear, vivid and very bright. A very nice note in nice condition to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
