Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine or better with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and horizontal folds with general light wrinkling. Paper has some soiling and some minor staining (mostly along the central vertical fold) but with no objectionable stains as can be seen in the images presented. The note's paper still retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. The note has graffiti on the front, but has no pinholes, no tears and no splits. The edges show general roughness and a few minor nicks. The corners are intact with some rounding, bumps, and creases. A nice note to add to your collection. Please see scans for additional condition information.
