Condition: I would grade this banknote as about uncirculated with all the being very well preserved. The note has no folds, and no creases. It retains all of its original stiffness and crispiness. It has no wrinkling, no graffiti, no pinholes, no stains, no soiling, no splits, and no tears. The note would have been a solid uncirculated except for the few bumps to the bottom edge and to a lesser degree to the top edge, which are from handling as opposed to circulation and hence our about uncirculated grade. The note is clean, fresh with vivid colors. The corners are intact, fully squared with no appreciable rounding or creasing. The note has no splits and its edges are intact.
