When Japan started their thing in the Asia theatre during the 1930's, the United States took certain monetary actions. One of which was to remove the normal printed currency in Hawaii and release special "emergency" currency. These notes were printed with a Brown Seal and overprinted with the word HAWAII on the front and back. If Japan invaded Hawaii, they could not use our own money against us. All we had to say in that event was all Hawaii notes were nul and void. I'm reluctant to say that luckily that didn't happen.

In the Northern Aftica theatre, a special series of Yellow Seals were released to servicemen. These were released to the US troops around when Eisenhower started Operation Torch against German Field Marshall Erwin "Desert Fox" Rommel. They were to a simillar affect to protect the US as was the Hawaii overprinting variety. The highest denomination of that series was $10.

The first note shown is a Short Snorter. Servicement would pass notes around and sign them. For more info on these and why they did this, visit the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_snorter.
