Reason
Very high quality, good EV (greater EV viewed as a set).
The North Africa Series of United States Silver Certificates was issued in $1, $5, and $10 denominations, with series dates of 1934, 1934A, and 1935A. Similar to their Hawaii overprint counterparts, the North Africa series was issued during World War II, but for use in Europe and Northern Africa. Had U.S. Forces suffered defeat, the entire series would have been demonetized. Blue serial numbers were standard, but this was the only issue of Silver Certificates with a bright yellow treasury seal.
