Pick Number: S538c.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as a crisp uncirculated with all the details being very well preserved. The note has no folds, creases, or wrinkling. It is clean with no soiling, stains, pinholes, or edge wear of any sort. The corners are intact and squared with no observable rounding. The note retains all of its original sheen, stiffness, and crispiness. The note has no tears, or splits. It does have some ink spots on the back, which we believe are from the ink on the notes which were put with this one in the pack at the printer. We believe these are original to the process of making the note. We consider the note as being problem free, beautiful, crisp, uncirculated, and is worthy of a spot in your collection of Mexican banknotes. Please see scans for additional condition information.
