Hawaiian Dollars

World War II ushered in the printing of specialized military currency to provide economic stability for the U.S. dollar in occupied countries. In Hawaii, the Treasury Department replaced all U.S. currency with special issue notes as a precautionary measure in the event of a Japanese victory. Had the Japanese invaded Hawaii, the special currency would have prevented the Japanese from confiscating U.S. money, which was negotiable around the world.

    Probably a lot less…as anything before 1942 was just stamped and easy to fake. The 42-45 were actually printed differently and worth that amount.
