Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine with all the details being well preserved. The note retains some of its original stiffness. The note has several vertical folds but no obvious horizontal ones. The not shows soiling especially along the fold lines on the back. The note has some stains, graffiti within the left margin on the back (the number 58 in red ink), and general light roughness along the edges, especially at the ends of the folds. The corners are intact but show some rounding and bumps. The note has no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. A nice note in very fine condition to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
