    Description

    Menelik II white metal Uniface Pattern Talari - Pair EE1888-A (1896), KM5 (in silver), both pieces are toned UNC. An unique pair of uniface patterns featuring the obverse die from the Paris Mint for the Birr dated EE1888 and the regular Lagrange design reverse. Interestingly, the EE1888 Birr has never been found in silver, despite the fact that the 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 Birr were all produced for presentation sets, 200 per type. Each piece has "1 Thalari" on the reverse in mirror image. A highly intriguing pair of patterns, 28.00 and 28.25 grams, plain edge.
