Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping for first class shipments are generally very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. So please check the shipping cost to your location before bidding. I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine or much better with all the details preserved. The note has one vertical fold and a horizontal crease. Other than that, the note has no tears, splits, pinholes, or wrinkling. The corners are intact and fully squared with minimum rounding if any. The note is relatively clean with minor soiling and no stains. The note is nicely margined and is in great original condition. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. This is a rather scarce note in such good condition and is worthy of a spot in any collection. Please see scans for additional condition information.
