Julian/Morganthau signatures—Friedberg #2300.
Due to the very real possibility of a Japanese invasion of Hawaii and the west coast following Pearl Harbor, the Treasury Department issued these special notes. In the event of the currency falling into enemy hands, these could be rendered worthless by the government.
These are popular with collectors and solid, no problem specimens like this one are getting harder to find.
Although many of these notes were printed during the war, they are seldom seen today. These historic notes would make great gift ideas for any currency collector!
