I cheated, and failed miserably. I checked the PMG pop report and saw a 35, 64 and 66. I said to myself, there’s no way it’s a 35. Cheaters never win...shame on me.

I see 2 folds, there is a center fold vertical and a center fold horizontal. So I would call it XF 45. With the crinkly paper, I can see why it was VF 35. Looks like some one had it in there pocket.

@ hfjacinto.  Firstly,these are not actually common at all.T&P shows only one non-star,HA has only a specimen and no other and PMG shows only 3 have been graded in all grades including mine.I bought mine 15 years ago and I have not seen any low serial numbers other than this example ever.As to why would I get it graded....there are a few reasons.1) I am getting ready to sell it and the marketplace prefers graded notes.....2) I fully expected an AU grade which, along with the low serial number, would aid in the sale of the note....3)Sometimes when I send in bulk submissions I need a few notes that I may otherwise not feel needs grading to get up to the minimum of notes required to get the bulk pricing.

Years ago I went to a FUN auction.  At that time a large fraction of the notes were not slabbed.
I went into the room where you go to personally examine lots pre-auction.
More than once I saw guys take a raw note and gently "curve" it to see if a fold would make itself known.
No effort was made to stop these dudes.
So, I thought two things:
One - examine your lots as close to the auction as possible in case someone else messes them up
Two - I guess curling and pushing on a note really does help reveal a fold

Long story short, I wonder if PMG pushed on it and got it to "pop" a bit.
How else can it be a 35?

There is no way in hell that is a 35. 

I do see a a third light bend, which would knock it to 45, but no lower than that !

Perhaps the ripples in the paper are what got it no Q. 

I can tell t is obviously not pressed / washed, there is embossing and there would be no ripples on a pressed note.

I say it's a 35! 😁😈😈...again we're trying to grade a note with pictures..of a note that is encapsulated. It doesn't look like a 35 to anyone here, including me...only way to be sure is to re-submit it. Who wants to start a numbersman go fund me to pay for it?
Always looking for high quality fractional notes, specimens, proofs, experimentals and anything fractional related
