New additions week 45 - 2013 (1)

This week I received a new note I bought on eBay. Not only was it a bargain, it is also the 197th country in my collection! Just three more to go and I can order cake to celebrate the magical 200.

This note is from Rhodesia, the country which was never recognized and which existed for only 14 years. It was considered a de facto successor state to the former British colony of Southern Rhodesia. After a bloody civil war, in which the white government fought with two black nationalist groups, the country finally settled for peace in 1980 and renamed itself Zimbabwe.

This is a 1 dollar note from 1970 and has pick number 30a.
