The note shows signs of light circulation with one pronounce vertical central fold with some additional very light vertical folds. The note is lightly soiled with minor staining but has no objectionable large and pronounced stains. The paper still retains most of its original stiffness and crispiness.

Its colors are clear, vivid, and bright. It has an overall desirable and very pleasing appearance. Please see photo for additional condition information.
