My father gave me this one dollar bill when I was a young boy and told me to hold on to it. What I found out about this dollar in short was in 1942 these brown seal U.S. $1 note were a emergency issue to be used in Hawaii and were stamped Hawaii in case of a Japanese invasion and capture of U.S. currency. they would easily be reconized and demontized.

    AR8Jason, How many dollars did you say you want to give me. There was a time I could have used that dollar and bought 5 gal's of gas for my 1951 Chevy.

    MathiasR, Thanks for the information.

    I only have the one, I have heard that Hawaii was stamped on the two, five, ten and twenty dollar bills. You remember the two dollar bills the Navy use to issue on payday?

    When I was in the Army from 1961 to 1964, we were paid once a month on the first day of that month and in was in cash. two dollars bill was the lowest denomination issued. Also the two dollar bill showed what impact the military payroll had on the German ecommonity. I wonder what year the military went to checks and twice a month pay.

    The Silver Certificate HAWAII bill I have was stamped on the USS Missouri at the signing of the armistice. It has the date (Se[t 2, 1945) and stamped at 45 degree angles off the front left and the date (Sept 2, 1845) and stamped at 45 degree angles off the right side. Both stamps have NAVY at the bottom. My Dad said they were stamping these for the Navy guys as souvenirs that day. His service was as Radioman 3rd Class on the USS Caulk, tied up next to the USS Missouri that day (along with quite a few others, I suspect). The fact that the years are "off" by a digit relative to one another reflects to me, perhaps a rotating stamp that lost it's place. (If you have ever used these old style stamps (like the supermarkets utilized through the 1970's to mark products with) you would understand how easily they could have moved off a digit to reflect a different date.
    (By the way, this HAWAII & armistice stamped bill reflect the genuine four year stamp date, unlike the fake two year stamp date that O'bama's crew made up for his fake Hawaii Birth Certificate.)

    The Japanese Instrument of Surrender was the written agreement that enabled the Surrender of Japan, marking the end of World War II. It was signed by representatives from the Empire of Japan, the United States of America, the Republic of China, the United Kingdom, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Commonwealth of Australia, the Dominion of Canada, the Provisional Government of the French Republic, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the Dominion of New Zealand on the deck of the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945.

    Additionally, I just posted two pictures of this on Show & Tell if you know how to look that up, under the title in US Currency, Silver Certificates as

    Any ideas of it's validity or value?

    Thanks Kavash, I saw your Hawaii dollar bill and its a nice one to hold on to. I was offered $75.00 for the one I have, yours could bring even more with the history behind it.

    I have a BUNCH of paper and coins from the war that my grandfather gave me to use as he said "on a cool, bright sunny day that birds were flying down from the sky" that I would live to get a value on but don't know where to take them to get a true and HONEST answer!! Also just to learn more about them since he past before being able to tell me about them!

    does any one know how much one dollar silver cer.stamped hawaii that is not in good condition goes for?
  23. ladybear, 1 month ago
    oh it is from 1935
  24. aghcollect aghcollect, 1 month ago
    There were over 35 million printed so value would depend entirely on the condition. If you can, post it on your board, preferably a scan of both sides
