Condition: I would grade this banknote as choice about uncirculated. The note retains all of its original stiffness, crispiness and sheen. It has no folds, no tears, no splits, no pinholes, no graffiti, and is clean with no stains. The corners are intact and fully squared with minimum rounding if any. The left side corners of the back, both top and bottom, show small creases and bumps, which is the reason we grade the note Choice About Uncirculated instead of straight Uncirculated. A great note from the end of World War II that is in great condition and would make a nice addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
