Perhaps this is a strange note to feature, as unfortunately it is in VF/F grade. Regardless, I think this note is extremely interesting and worth featuring here!

The note depicts Josip Broz Tito the former president of the former Yugoslavia. While Tito is depicted on his own currency from Yugoslavia as well as some FUN notes that bare his image; I find it incredible that he is also honored on a banknote from Guinea. The note was issued to commemorate Tito’s visit in 1961 to the African country, and I think a great example of how interesting and intertwining banknote and collecting can be.
