    Rare High Denomination with Low Serial

    Ethiopia State Bank of Ethiopia 500 Dollars ND (1961) Pick 24a PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    A true show stopper that ticks all the right boxes. Incredible eye appeal, a true rarity, low numbered, and shares the top population spot with only 1 other example, with only two examples registered in the PMG Census.

    Dark green on multicolor underprint. Emperor Haile Selassie to right, Fasilides castle at Gondar to the left, and the royal lion crest on back. Low numbered G/1 000010. We have not found any sale history for this Pick. It is for this reason that we have conservatively estimated this example, but feel that it would make for a rare opportunity to own this lovely note. Rare, and simply a thing of beauty.
