Currency 1945 No Date Ethiopia 1 Dollar Emperor Haile Selassie Pick 12c VF+
Description: A nice very fine or better Banknote from Ethiopia. This is the no date 1945, one dollar currency note issued by the State Bank of Ethiopia. The front of the banknote has black design on orange underprint and depicts the image of emperor Haile Selassie at left and the image of a farmer plowing the land with oxen dragging the plow in the center. The back depicts the image of the Ethiopian Arms which is a crowned lion with a flagged cross in its paw. The banknote does not display the date anywhere. It displays the denomination on both the front and back. It has one signature on the front and is signed Rozell. This particular note has the serial number FB073198. The paper of the note is rather thick and stiff. Please carefully review the scan as it is part and parcel of our description.

Pick Number: P 12c.
Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this banknote as a nice very fine or better with all the details being well preserved. The note is intact but soiled and has a few stains especially on the back. Its corners are intact but show rounding and some bump. The note has a heavy vertical fold but no horizontal fold that we could find. The edges are soiled and show light roughness but no tears or splits. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes and no appreciable wrinkling. It still retains quite a bit of its original stiffness. A nice note to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
