Hawaii Overprints


During WWII, the U.S. feared that the Hawaiian Islands, and the millions of dollars in U.S. currency circulating there, might fall to the Japanese. So in 1942 the U.S. government issued special Federal Reserve Notes with a HAWAII overprint that would be worthless in the hands of the enemy, but could be used as money in Hawaii as long as the U.S. maintained control.
