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 good fine or much better with all of its details being still well preserved. The note is soiled and has many folds and creases both vertical and horizontal. The note has minor staining, especially on the back, but no major objectionable stains. The edges are rough, have a few nicks, and a long fold along the top edge, which we did not attempt to flatten, thus keeping the note in its original circulated condition. The corners are intact with some rounding, creases, folds, and bumps. The note has no pinholes, tears, no splits, and no graffiti. It is still intact with some residual stiffness. A nice note at a reasonable price to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
