The crisis of World War II has worn away, but it is essential that we remember our past. As President Franklin Roosevelt said, December 7, 1941 is a date that will live in infamy.
Collect a token of those years with the 1935 Hawaii $1 Silver Certificate in cull condition, available from Provident Metals.
These overprint notes were emergency issue bills created after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The bills are distinguished by an overprint reading HAWAII, and were issued so that if Hawaii were to be captured by Japanese forces, the bills could be instantly be rendered useless, preventing the Japanese from seizing a great amount of American wealth.
The silver certificates look very much like the modern dollar bill, with a portrait of George Washington. The paper is dark in color and includes a brown stamp. The word HAWAII has been added to the right of the bill on the obverse.
The reverse shows the green ink of a typical silver certificate, but overprinted in block letters are the letters HAWAII.
When the certificates were issued, all typical bills were recalled. Those bills were eventually burned and replaced with the overprinted Hawaii Silver Certificates. Beginning on August 15, 1942, no currency except for the overprinted bills was allowed to be used in the Hawaiian islands until the end of the war.
Though the war is long since over, we must never forget our past. Bring home this 1935 Hawaii $1 Silver Certificate Cull today, and ensure the trials of global war are not lost forever.
