I would grade this banknote as a very fine with all the details being well preserved. The note shows signs of circulation with three vertical folds and one horizontal. It is soiled and shows staining along the folds on the back of the note. The edges show minor roughness but no tears or splits. The corners are squared with minor rounding and some bumps. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, and no objectionable large stains. This is a nice example of this scarce note and worthy of a spot in your collection.
