I would grade this banknote as a nice extremely fine or much better with all the details being well preserved. The note has one light vertical crease in the center. The note still retains most, if not all, of its original stiffness. The colors are vivid and bright. The corners are intact with minimum rounding if any. The edges are intact and show no wear. The note is clean with no stains, no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. The tear the light crease, which is hard to see, is the reason we are grading the note as extremely fine and not AU. The note would make a great addition to your collection of Australian banknotes. Please see photo for additional condition information.
