Condition: I would grade this banknote as a very nice extremely fine or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has one central light vertical fold and no obvious horizontal fold. It also has a light crease which can be seen at the left hand corner of the back. It also has light bumps at a couple of the corners, which are difficult to see but are there. This is a very attractive note, with light handling. The note is clean and bright with original sheen. The corners are intact with minimum rounding if any. The edges are intact and show no significant roughness. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no stains, no tears, and no splits.
