Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. The note is graded by PMG as 20 very fine and comes in a plastic holder so labeled. The holder also indicates the note is stained. It is soiled with staining and shows folds and creases. It has rounded corners and some loss in one of the corners. A nice scarce note worthy of a spot in your collection. Please view the scans presented for additional condition information.
