Date: 18th December 1945.
Printer: Bradbury Wilkinson & Co. London, Great Britain.
Size: The banknote measures ~6 3/4" by ~3 1/2".
Pick Number: P 19c, with the small Nixon signature.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice fine or much better with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and horizontal folds with general light wrinkling. Paper has some soiling but no objectionable stains as can be seen in the images presented. The note's paper still retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. The note has several tears or splits along the top and bottom edges with the longest being ~1/8". The top and bottom edges also show general roughness and a few minor kicks. The side edges are in much better condition with no apparent roughness. The corners are intact and fairly squared with minor rounding and do show bumps as well as creases. The note has graffiti in the form of the number 25 underlined on the front. It has no pinholes or repairs. A great note to add to your collection. Please see scans for additional condition information.
