Own a special piece of United States history with a rare Emergency WWII 'Hawaii' $1 Bill. On December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor - the event that launched the U.S. into World War II. The U.S. was worried that Hawaii might be overrun by the Japanese and that large amounts of U.S. currency would fall into enemy hands. Therefore, they created a series of emergency bank notes solely for use of residents and troops in Hawaii and the Pacific. Issued from July 1942- October 1944, the series ended when it became clear that Hawaii was no longer likely to fall to the Japanese. Each of these 1935A series emergency bills was printed with a brown seal instead of the usual blue seal on Silver Certificates. The word Hawaii is printed on both sides. If these bills fell into enemy hands, they would have simply been demonetized and made worthless. The note is protected behind clear acrylic in a display wallet with a story card to explain its uniqueness. A certificate of authenticity accompanies each note.
