Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice extremely fine or possibly about uncirculated with all of its details being very well preserved. The note has light wrinkling to the paper. Other than that the note is very nice original state with no creases, folds, pinholes, graffiti, soiling or stains. The corners are intact, nicely squared with no rounding at all. The note retains its original crispiness and is just great looking. A great condition for this rather rare banknote. Please see photo for additional condition information.
