USA 1 $ - Silver Certificate 1935 (November 1942) B99226037 C grade: VG+ cat: 416AY comment: Special Issued for Military Use in North Africa & Sicily in WWII. Yellow Seal. the American government was worried that the American money supply in North Africa could be taken over by a German attack. In response to this worry, all military personnel were paid with one, five, and ten dollar silver certificates with a yellow seal. This action was taken so that any silver certificate with a yellow seal could be devalued if the Germans did in fact capture the money. Don’t let the years on these confuse you. Paper money isn’t like coins. The series date on currency rarely coincides with when the note actually left the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. So while North Africa notes say 1935 or 1934, they were most certainly not printed then. Front : Président George Washington - Back : Great Seal of the United States. added: 13 months ago
