Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine or better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has several vertical folds, angled folds, or creases, but no apparent horizontal fold. It is lightly soiled but has no large objectionable stains. It does have some small and light stains. The edges are intact but show some roughness, especially at the end of the folds. The corners are intact with bumping and rounding. The note has no tears, no splits, no pinholes (a miracle for a French note), and no graffiti. The note retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. A great example of this rather scarce banknote offered here at a reasonable price. A great note to add to your collection. Please see scans for additional condition information.
