6,5% Savings Bond of 100 Eth. Dollars, specimen. blue, black. Ethiopian government bond. The front is entirely written in one of the 88 individual languages of Ethiopia - our best guess is Oromo or Amharic (both with a very specific writing). Luckily, the back gives a full English translation. The loan was to be issued by the Ethiopian National Bank and to be repaid after 10 years (1974). We offer here a specimen printed by Thomas de la Rue, London. Vignette symbolises industrial development. Only piece known to us.
