I don't know if there's such a thing as a DETAILS grade on currency.
Without the hole it could be 25-30? Besides being folded down the middle there are other areas, that seem to be partially restored creases, etc.
I attended a grading workshop by a pretty upstanding paper certifier in this area & he said (a few times) you grade the overall note and then identify the issue. The issue doesn't take your # down but they are like NET notes. (It has a stigma attached to it). So, as Steve (& others) have pointed out its probably VF20 or even VF25 (b/c the paper is pretty good) but with a "hole" or "part missing" issue (& of course non EPQ). The paper is discoloured so it would have lost its EPQ even without the hole/missing piece. But if the missing piece was there it would be a much better purchase. However, with a hole that size, it will be a deal-breaker for a LOT of collectors as are most issues (& NET notes). It certainly takes away almost any eye appeal the note would have had so it will be a very tough sell down the road.
hole in the middle is a major distraction
and would affect the over all desirability
of the note.
The question to ask yourself: When looking at the note, is your first thought:
1) That is a cool looking Kaiser, or
2) That is an ugly looking hole.
If the answer is 2, then forget it. But if the answer is 1, then it could be for you. My personal thought on seeing your scan was 1.
Somehow I doubt you would have too much trouble selling it. It is a cool design, some collector will want it, though of course the price will suffer.
