War Emergency Notes - North Africa

During World War II, emergency US Silver Certificates were issued for use by U.S. troops in North Africa and Sicily. But instead of the usual blue seal on regular Silver Certificates, these special "North Africa" notes were printed with unique yellow seals. Had they fallen into German hands, they would have been demonetized and made worthless. Most of these scarce and fascinating notes were worn out or destroyed over 60 years ago.
