Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this banknote as a nice apparent very fine or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note retains quite a bit of its original sheen, stiffness and crispiness. It has vertical folds and a horizontal crease. It has some light folds here and there that are difficult to visualize. The note shows some light soiling but no stains. It has no graffiti, no tears and no splits. The note has several pinholes indicative of staples that were removed in the center of the top and bottom. This is the main reason we are grading the note as apparent very fine instead of straight very fine or as about extremely fine. It does have minor to the edges but nothing to worry about. The corners are intact with some minor rounding and some minor bumps. The edges are intact with some minor roughness at the ends of the folds. A beautiful and very desirable note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
