Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice extremely fine or better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has light vertical folds. It is clean with no appreciable soiling, no graffiti and no stains. The note retains most of its original crispiness, stiffness and has no pinholes. It has a few small minor bumps along the bottom edge, which are difficult to see in the photos, but the edges are intact. The note has no tears, or splits, and is in great original condition. It is clean and shows no appreciable wear to the edges. In general the note has very little wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The corners are intact with minimum rounding and creasing. Please see photo for additional condition information.
