    Description

    Haile Selassie Trial Strike/Pattern Set EE1921 (1929), Gill RT1-5, thin uniface trial strikes in white metal for the pattern silver coinage. This incredibly rare (if not unique) set includes obverse and reverse strikes of the Gersh, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 Birr all in choice UNC. The obverses feature the bust of Ras Tafari to the left and the reverses display the Lion of Judah. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the specialist collector, and the pedigree is impeccable.
    From the Collection of Dennis Gill.
