Condition: I would grade this banknote as about uncirculated or much better with all the details being well preserved. The note has no creases but has some waviness to the paper and possibly a light short fold near the top. The note shows good embossing and the colors are vivid and crisp. The note retains all of its original stiffness and crispiness. It has no graffiti, no observable soiling, no stains, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The corners are nicely squared with no observable rounding and no creases or folds. The edges are intact with no observable wear or roughness. Just a great note in wonderful condition to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
