Condition: I would grade the banknote as an excellent very good to fine with all the details being well preserved. The note has general wrinkling, several folds, losses at the edges and corners, and general soiling. The note has some minor stain spots but no pin holes that we could find. Be that as it may the note is in nice original condition and would make a great addition to your collection of world banknotes. Please see photo for additional condition information.
