The Silver Certificate HAWAII bill I have was stamped on the USS Missouri at the signing of the armistice. It has the date (Sept 2, 1945) and stamped at 45 degree angles off the front left and the date (Sept 2, 1945) 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).

(By the way, this HAWAII & armistice stamped bill reflect the genuine four year stamp date, unlike the fake two year stamp date 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
HAWAII ONE DOLLAR BILL STAMPED ON USS MISSOURI
ARMISTICE DAY SEPTEMBER 2nd 1945

Any ideas of it's validity or value?

    I also have a Hawaii stamped one dollar bill on my post. My dad was at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941. When he came home he gave me the dollar bill and told me to keep it, I still have it after 70 years.
