PMG holder mentions paper maker's notch (an element from the printing process); otherwise, just some light staining on reverse to note. Much better than commonly encountered as the majority PMG has seen graded between VF and XF. A counterfeit note produced by Polish and Jewish prisoners held by the Nazis in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp during World War II. Prisoners produced notes in quantity and went so far as to handle and dirty them to simulate circulation. Towards the end of the war, the Nazis dumped the notes into lakes and rivers where some were recovered. PMG #5002592-010.
