Banknote: United States 1 dollar Silver Certificate with yellow seal - Submitted by: Stan Sunde (eBay userid "bidhigh")
This is an emergency note issued during World War II for use with the Armed Forces in Europe and North Africa. They
were issued in 1, 5, and 10 dollar denominations. Well worn... but does have some interesting typing on note front that
reads (left), "
HOKUS  PATCH / MEMBERSHIP OLUS";   (right), "Activated North Africa / August 22, 1943". Anyone know
what this could possibly mean?
Please send me an email....
