Condition: I would grade this banknote as choice almost or about uncirculated with all the details being very well preserved. The note has no folds or crease. It retains all of its original stiffness, crispiness and sheen. The note has no graffiti, pinholes, stains, or soiling. The note has minor signs of handling at the edges with light bumps along the bottom and top edges. This is the reason we are grading the note as AU instead of Uncirculated. Be that as it may, this is a very attractive note worthy of a prominent spot in your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
