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 with all the details being still well preserved. The note has creases and folds both vertical and horizontal. The note is soiled and shows staining especially on the back. The corners show some light rounding and bumps. The edges show roughness with the top edge showing a small loss at the center and tears at the left and right edges at the center (basically at the end of the fold) that are short and do not reach the design. The note has np pinholes, no graffiti and no major stains or additional problems. A nice note to add to your collection. Please see the scan for additional condition information.
