Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice extremely fine or better with all the details being very well preserved. The note has three vertical folds but is relatively clean with very light soiling. The note is crisp and intact. The note has no stains, no graffiti, no pinholes and is in great original condition. The note retains quite a bit of its original stiffness and crispiness. The corners are intact, fully squared with minimum observable rounding and a few minor bumps. The edges show minimum roughness if any and the note has no tears or splits. A beautiful crisp note in excellent original condition worthy of a spot in your collection of Egyptian banknotes. Please see scans for additional condition information.
