Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice fine with all the details being still preserved. This note is well used but is still intact. The corners are rounded but are intact. The note has sizable nicks at the center of the top and bottom edge at the ends of the central vertical heavy crease. The note has additional light folds mostly vertical but does not appear to have a horizontal fold. It has no tears or splits. It is heavily soiled with some staining throughout. It has no graffiti, no pinholes and observable wrinkling. The note has fold, both vertical and horizontal, and has general wrinkling. Its colors are a bit faded and obscured by the soiling. The note still has some stiffness and is not completely limp. Please see photo for additional condition information.
