The Grading of paper money is a very important aspect of dealing with High Denomination Notes. Whether you are buying for a collection or just trying to determine what the value of a given note is. Very small and seemingly insignificant features such as a small corner fold or a slight, almost undetectable wrinkle, could result in a substantial reduction, in the overall value of a note.
