It also has general wrinkling some general light soiling with some staining. It also has diagonal creases especially near the corners. It has no pinholes, splits or tears. The corners are slightly rounded but are intact and show creases. The edges are intact and the note is nicely centered. The note still has some of its original crispiness and the colors are still vivid and have not faded appreciable. The note would make a great addition to your collection of Australian banknotes.
