Historic "Hawaii" World War II Emergency $20 Note
Scarce $20 Silver Certificate issued after attack on Pearl Harbor!
After the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7th, 1941, the United States military feared the Japanese might attack again and even invade. So in 1942, the Government recalled and destroyed over $200 Million legal tender paper notes, and issued specially marked Hawaii Emergency Notes to ensure that U.S. dollars circulating on the islands would not fall into enemy hands.
Hawaii Emergency Notes are scarce and seldom seen today. Because of low printing numbers, wide circulation, and the numbers destroyed during their withdrawal from commerce in 1946, these silver certificates have become one of the most popular and collected notes in the paper money collecting field.
