A Crisp Uncirculated pair of notes issued by Ethiopia in 2009. (P47-8) The blue 5 birr references the important coffee industry on the front with and antelope and lynx on the back set against a mountainous background. The brown 10 birr shows a young girl making a straw mat on the front with a farmer in his fields with a tractor. Uncirculated Ethiopian pair.
These 100 francs follow that admirable French tradition of beautifully and delicately designed notes. Our group has notes dated between 1930 and 1939. The front has allegorical figures alongside farming vignettes with apple trees, sheep and bales of wool. The back features a seated blacksmith to the left and allegorical figures with a cornucopia of fruit to the right. Our notes have all seen circulation and grade VG to Fine.
