On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, devastating half the American fleet. Just three days later, our paper money entered the war! Now you can own a $20 Emergency Note printed exclusively for use in the Pacific.
After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. issued paper money with hawaii boldly printed across the back and in smaller print on either side of the face. In addition, the seal and serial numbers were printed in brown, instead of the usual blue color found on Silver Certificates or the green color found on Federal Reserve Notes. Their distinctive look made them easily identifiable, so they could be declared worthless if large quantities of the notes fell into enemy hands.
Choose this Very Fine $20 Note. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a “Hawaii” Emergency Note!
