The back has the same color scheme as the back and depicts jungle animals including a lion and a tiger sitting on tree branches and giraffes in the plain.

Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine or better with all the details still well preserved. The note has several folds and general wrinkling. It is lightly soiled but has a few minor and small stains. The edges are intact with roughness and minor nicks but has no tears or splits. The corners are intact but show rounding and bumps. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears and no splits. The note is stiff and the paper is not limp. A very nice note in very fine condition, which would make a nice addition to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
