Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice about very fine with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical and horizontal folds. The note still retains quite a bit of its original stiffness. The colors are vivid and bright. The corners are intact with minimum rounding but display some bumps and creasing. The edges are intact and show minimum wear, but there is a tear at the top margin that is ~5/8" long and ~1/8" wide. The note has several pinholes which are in doubles obviously from staples. It also has a little folded portion along the bottom edge. The note has no graffiti, but shows some soiling and some minor staining. The tear and the pinholes are the reason we are grading the coin as fine or apparent fine and not very fine. The note would make a great addition to your collection of Australian banknotes.
