One of the standout releases in the history of the $1 Silver Certificate from the United States is the Hawaii overprint. Released in 1942 and used in Hawaii throughout the remainder of World War II, the notes were actually designed to be instantly recognizable by the Treasury so that the notes could be demonetized and rendered useless in the event of a Japanese invasion.

The 1935a Silver Certificate was only available in the $1 denomination and issued in two versions. The North Africa version was issued to US Troops in that theater of the war with yellow ink on the seals. These Hawaii Overprint notes were issued in Hawaii with brown ink on the notes. Both were designed to be demonetized easily through quick recognition of the ink colors.
The obverse of the 1935a $1 Silver Certificate Hawaii Notes comes with a portrait of President George Washington.
