It has a central vertical fold, but no other folds or wrinkling. The note is clean with no stains. It has noo graffiti, no pinholes, no tears and no splits. The corners are intact and very well squared with minimum rounding if any. The edges are intact with no roughness. A beautiful and very desirable note to add to your collection.
