History on these WorldWar II Emergency Currency Issue North Africa Notes:
During World War II the United States issued special currency to the US Troops involved in the North Africa campaign. The North Africa Notes were offered in 3 denominations: One Dollar, Five Dollar, and Ten Dollar. The One Dollar Bills are Silver Certificates and were included in series 1935 (Series 1935A). The Five Dollar Bills are also Silver Certificates included in the series 1934 (Series 1934A). The Ten Dollar Bills are also Silver Certificates included in series 1934 (Series 1934 and 1934A) .

These North Africa Notes were issued as pay to all military personnel involved in the North Africa campaign. The US Government decided to do this in case of a German take-over. They wanted to protect the American currency supply in the region. The US Government could immediately declare these North Africa Notes worthless if they fell into the hands of the Germans.
