Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine or better with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and a possible horizontal fold. The note has some overall wrinkling and is lightly soiled. It does have some small and rather minor stains especially along the bottom edge as well as some vertical brown soiling or staining along the central vertical fold which can be seen on the front of the note. The note has some minor roughness to the edges but has no tears or splits. The corners are intact with some bumps and are lightly rounded. The note retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. It is intact with no tears or splits. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, and no major objectionable stains. This is a very nice example of this rather interesting and scarce note, which would make a nice addition to your collection. Please view the scans presented for additional condition information.
