The banknote is green and orange on the front with the image of an allegorical woman sitting on vine-wrapped roman column with a child looking at a beehive.

Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this banknote as very fine with all the details being still preserved. The note has a vertical central fold and a horizontal fold. It has some wrinkling and may have been lightly pressed. The note is soiled and has a few small stains but none that are large and truly objectionable. The corners have wear and rounding, the edges have some minor roughness and small nicks at the ends of the folds. The note has no tears, no pinholes, and no graffiti. The note still retains some of its stiffness and retains all of its original coloring with no appreciable fading. This is a nice example of this rather scarce note, which would make a nice addition to your collection. Please view the scans for additional condition information.
