Pick Number: P 8d.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as a good very fine or better with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical folds as well as a horizontal fold. it is generally clean with light soiling but no stains. It has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The note shows signs of minimum roughness along the edges. The corners are intact but show rounding, creasing and some bumping. Be that as it may, this is a nice example of a rather scarce banknote that seldom comes by and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
