During World War II, the potential for the enemy to seize American cash circulating in Hawaii and North Africa was a significant concern to the United States government. Two emergency issues of paper money were produced that bore distinctive treasury seals and overprinting with the idea that this special currency could be canceled in the event of invasion, rendering it worthless in enemy hands.
Many soldiers returning home from the Pacific and North African theaters brought the unusual brown and yellow seal notes back to the mainland as souvenirs. Today, these scarce emergency issues remain important economic artifacts from World War II that serve as an enduring and tangible reminder of a time of profound crisis and world conflict.
