    Description

    Ras Tafari gold Airplane Medal EE1921 (1928), Addis Ababa mint, 34mm, 23.04g, Gill-RT13, UNC. A rare type commemorating the acquisition of four aircraft from France as the beginning of Ethiopia's Air Force. The surfaces are lightly toned over significant luster with wispy hairlines and minor contact marks. The juxtaposition appeals as the portrait of Ras Tafari is quite stately while the reverse depiction of the aircraft is almost comically crude. A very desirable issue.
