Product Description

1935A Brown Seal "Hawaii" $1 Bill
Own a special piece of United States history with a rare 1935A "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 plastic in a custom display wallet accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

    OK Bill

    Wanted this Hawaii bill for awhile and the review weren't always favorable. The Hawaii bill is in okay (fine?) condition, is it worth the money that I paid, probably not, but I got free shipment. Not sure if I would recommend.

    Its a unquie piece but the bill is creased and it looks like its been used a lot. I dont think its worth the asking price. But Ill probably keep the bill because it is different

    I have collected currency for quite a while and even though this note is okay it is not even close to AU+. I have not returned it yet but I am certainly going to. This is not the only example of some errors in grading that I have seen. Grading coins and currency is extremely subjective even someone who has never seen a graded currency note would be able to determine that the note I received was not an "AU+" or about uncirculated plus. It is a VF at best with folds along the vertical and horizontal centers and folded again into eighths.
