    Description

    Haile Selassie silver Pattern Proof Birr or Talari EE 1923 (1930) PR45 NGC, Vienna mint, Gill-S5. Plain edge. An exceptionally rare proof issue of this gorgeously designed pattern type, struck on the coronation of Haile Selassie, and featuring his crowned, veiled, and mantled bust on the obverse and the Lion of Judah, cradling a tasseled long cross, on the reverse. This specimen has seen a bit of handling and is slightly impaired, but nevertheless remains a great representation and one which is unlikely to be seen again anytime soon.
