Description
 
During WWII the US Treasury issued two special types of Silver Certificates more commonly know as Brown & Yellow Seals.

The Hawaii notes were printed for use in Hawaii after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. This Silver Certificate has "Hawaii" running vertically on the right and left sides of the the face of the note, with large letters across the back. The normal Blue Silver Certificate Seal was replaced with Brown.

The North Africa note was printed for use during Operation Torch, which was the Allied invasion of North Africa. The normal Blue Silver Certificate Seal was replaced with Yellow. The reasoning for the replacement on both notes was to assure instant recognition ( and devaluation if necessary ) in the event of defeats by the enemy, or capture of large quantities of cash.

These Emergency notes are scarce! How rare? These notes are 175 to 200 times rarer than the Blue Seal Silver Certificates. But lets not forget these notes were to be destroyed after the war and very few were actually kept by soldiers returning home.

Each note is in circulated condition, has original color, not over shadowed in brown, has no pin holes or heavy folds, and are preserved in a hard plastic snap cases for display.
