Comments

Unlike the 10 Naira note printed from 1984 to 2005, this variation does not have the date listed on it. It also uses a  dark ton of purple on both the front and back on the note, mostly prominently featured on Dr Alvan Ikoku Suit which is dark purple whilst his head and face are printed in a more reddish tone
