Silver Certificates in the $1, $5, and $10 denomination were used with the Yellow Treasury seal beginning in 1942 for use by American Armed Forces in the North Africa and European Theater during World War II. This allowed any notes that were captured by enemy forces to have their legal tender status revoked by the Treasury if necessary. Although they are still legal tender, their yellow seals make them great collectors items.
Series 1934 $5 Silver Certificates were printed in large numbers, but this type was printed in much smaller numbers. These North Africa $5 Silvers are very popular with collectors.
