Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice crisp about uncirculated with all the details being extremely well preserved. The note retains all of its original sheen, crispiness and stiffness. The note has no folds, no creases, no bumps and no soiling. The corners are intact but they all have minor rounding and hence our grade of about uncirculated instead of a solid crisp uncirculated. Note has no pinholes, no graffiti, no stains, no tears, and no splits. It is in great shape and is a worthy addition to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
