Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this banknote as a nice about uncirculated or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has no apparent creases except of a small crease at the bottom left corner. It is clean with some light soiling at the bottom center of the back, has no stains, no graffiti, no splits, no tears, no pinholes, and no repairs. The corners are intact but there is a some rounding which can be seen in the photo. All these issues, in our opinion, are probably the product of mishandling by previous owner as opposed to true circulation. The note is crisp, retains its sheen, and its colors are vivid with no fading. The note is just beautiful and in good condition. Please see scans for additional condition information.
