Below you will find a link to a 1917 Large One Dollar Bill I
recently purchased.  I am looking for a little insight I don't know
much about the bills or where to find information on grading them.

You Post'em & I'll Read'em.

Link to view the specimen.  2 images 26K each.

Thanks So Much.

Agreed -- it looks to be VF.  A description of VF from Krause's Standard
Catalog of United States Paper Money, 17th edition:

"An attractive note, but with more evidence of handling and wear.  May
have a number of folds both vertically and horizontally.  Paper may have
minimal dirt, or possible color smudging.  Paper itself is still
relatively crisp and not floppy."

Retail value is probably around $60.

Some comments on the "sales pitch" at the auction site:

"...would have graded AU maybe higher, if it had not been folded at one
point in time." -- I'm having trouble understanding this statement.
I've got a faded, wrinkled Series 1996 $20 bill that would have graded
UNC if it hadn't gone through the washing machine at one point in time.

"...you won't find a nicer specimen, at least not very easily!" -- Give
me a break.  I've found nicer specimens at the coin & stamp department
of the Marshal Fields department store.  This is one of the easiest
large-size US notes there is.
