Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine with all of its details being well preserved. The has light folds with general light wrinkling and appears to have been flattened. The note is relatively clean with no major soiling or staining. The edges have some minor roughness and we have identified a shot tear (~1/8") at the bottom edge. There is also a few minor nicks here and there butt nothing to worry about. The not has no graffiti, no pinholes, and no additional tears or splits beyond what we have identified above. The corners are intact with no losses, but has some minor rounding and a few bumps. A relatively rare and very desirable note in very fine condition which would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
