This equates to Very Fine condition and indicates a note with a decent body for the paper, fine fold lines, and moderate crumbling, but no major wear and tear in the focal points.

The Demand Note was the first government-backed paper not issued in the United States and was intended to help finance the Union Army at the outbreak of the Civil War. Prior to the Demand Note, and throughout the next several decades, other entities would issue banknotes in the United States. This included state banks, state governments, local governments, railroads, and even merchants.
