    Hawaii Overprint F-C Block Uncut Sheet

    Fr. 2300 $1 1935A Hawaii Silver Certificates. F-C Block Uncut Sheet of Twelve. PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 Net.
    A scarce item with the second note on the face of this sheet at left displaying a small tape repair on the back. The Hawaii notes were first issued on June 8, 1942 in the Territory of Hawaii along with the islands of Midway, Johnston, and Palmyra. These emergency notes were a protective financial measure against a possible invasion by the Japanese. After August 15, 1942, no other United States paper money could be held or used in these islands without a special license that was obtainable through the office of the governor of the Territory of Hawaii. The governor was Joseph B. Poindexter from March 1934 to August 1942. The first proclamations concerning Hawaiian Series notes were made in Poindexter's name and in the name of the military governor of the islands, Brigadier General Thomas H. Green. All restrictions were removed on October 21, 1944. With no more restrictions, this great piece of World War II history is now open for bidding.
