It is relatively clean with no stains. The note is intact with no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. Its corners are intact with minimum rounding but have some minor bumps. The edges are intact with some roughness and nicks at the ends of the folds. The note retains some of its stiffness and crispiness. A nice note to add to your collection.
