Angola 20 Escudos 1973 P104a Unc

When these 20 escudos notes were issued in 1973, Angola was still under Portuguese Rule although this was not to last much longer (P104a). Angola was swept up by the Carnation Revolution taking place in Portugal in 1974. It achieved full independence along with other Portuguese colonies in 1975. These 20 escudos are much scarcer than other values in the same series. The front bears the portrait of probably the most famous of Portuguese poets Luis de Camoes (1524-1580) He is shown wearing armour and a crown of laurels and holding a quill and book. The Upland cotton plant appears on the back. From an original bundle put away 50 years ago when they were issued, we can offer Choice Uncirculated Angola 1973 20 escudos.
