Banknote: United States 1 dollar Silver Certificate with HAWAII overprint - Submitted by: Tom Sparks
The HAWAII overprint notes were made as a contingency plan in case the Territory of Hawaii was invaded by the
Japanese during World War II. The notes would have been devalued if that would have happened.
