The corners are squared and intact with minimum rounding if any. The edges are intact and show minimum wear as well as minimum roughness if any. The note is a bit soiled and has quite a bit of staining especially on the back. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. It has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears or splits. A beautiful crisp note in excellent original condition worthy of a spot in your collection of banknotes.
