Condition: I would grade this banknote as a choice about uncirculated or much better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has no folds, no creases, no tears, no splits, no graffiti, no pinholes, and no roughness along the edges. The corners are fully squared with no observable rounding. The note has minor bumping to the bottom left corner and the top right corner. This is the main reason we are grading the note as AU instead of UNC. This is a very clean banknote without soiling or stains. The note retains all of its original crispiness and original sheen. The note has minimum wear commensurate with its about uncirculated status.
