The obverse of $2 World War II Vintage Air Force Legal Tender Notes contains a portrait of Thomas Jefferson. To the right side, you will see a pinup girl who was famously featured on the sides of Memphis Belle, a Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress during WWII. On the left side, there is a watermark of the official US Air Force emblem. Surrounding this imagery is an elegant gold border.
You will find on the reverse side of $2 World War II Air Force Notes a rendition of the 1818 oil painting Declaration of Independence. Artist John Trumbull took some liberties with this painting, no doubt. In it, he depicts a room full of Congressmen and the Founding Fathers as they present a draft of the Declaration to John Hancock. In reality, this scene would have only involved a few individuals, but Trumbulls version serves to highlight the significance and high stakes of the moment.
The Air Force was originally established in 1907 as a member of the US Army Signal Corps. Following the National Security Act of 1947, the Air Force became its own division. This military branch was essential to the Allied victory during WWII right up until its conclusion with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The US Air Force has also been represented numerous times in Hollywood, with popular movie titles including The Right Stuff, Independence Day, and Red Dawn.
