Condition: I would grade this banknote as a good very fine or better with all the details being still preserved. The note has vertical and horizontal folds and creases. It has general wrinkling especially along the edges. The note is soiled but has no objectionable stains. The note has no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. Its edges show some roughness and show some nicks at the ends of the central vertical fold. Its corners are intact, but are rounded, folded on themselves, and have bumps. Be that as it may this is still an attractive note and would make a nice addition to your collection at a reasonable price for this rare note. Please see the scan for additional condition information.
