Condition: I would grade this banknote as a very good or better with all the details being fairly well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and horizontal folds. The note still retains some stiffness, but is fairly soiled. It has no tears or splits and is fairly soiled. It is a well used note, abused but still intact. The corners have much wear and rounding. The edges have tiny nicks all along the edges especially where the folds end. The note shows some staining but no appreciable discoloration . There is staining especially on the back. The note has three small holes that can be seen at center and a third into the design from both sides where the vertical folds meet the horizontal fold due to excessive folding. No other pinholes are present, and the note itself has no missing pieces. A nice and rare note to add to your collection. Please see the scan for additional condition information.
