The note still retains some of its original stiffness with its edges showing signs of handling with minor nicks in the border at the ends of the folds. The note has no pinholes, no tears, no splits, and no graffiti. The note's colors are clear and the central brown circular wheel still evident. The corners are intact with minimum rounding and a few bumps. This is a nice piece to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
