The 1935 Series in the US Silver Certificate program represented the third series in less than a decade following the introduction of the small-sized format in the collection. However, there were reasons for the redesign that included a new reverse field and changes in the ink for select issues of the collection. In particular, the 1935a Silver Certificates.

The 1935 Series introduced the new reverse design with the all-seeing eye atop a pyramid and the Great Seal of the United States. The series saw several variations in a short period of time with various seal sizes, signatures, and ink color combinations. The most significant was the 1935a, a subset of the second series 1935A notes. These notes had yellow ink and were issued only to US Troops in North Africa or in Hawaii with the “HAWAII” overnote stamp.
The obverse of these 1935a $1 Silver Certificate North Africa Notes features the portrait of President George Washington. The yellow-ink seal to the right makes these instantly identifiable as North Africa issues. In the event the US lost its ground in North Africa and retreating troops left behind stores of Silver Certificates, merchants would recognize the yellow ink and the US could announce these demonetized, rendering them useless.
On the reverse of 1935a $1 Silver Certificates is the image of the all-seeing eye and the Great Seal of the United States. The all-seeing eye is on the left atop a pyramid, while the Great Seal of the United States is on the right. This design appeared one year after the 1934 Series had redesigned the obverse slightly.
