A short snorter is a banknote which is signed by various persons traveling together or meeting up at different events. The tradition was started by bush pilots in Alaska in the 1920’s and subsequently spread through the growth of military and commercial aviation. If you signed a short snorter and that person could not produce it upon request, they owed you a dollar or a drink (a “short snort”).

This particular note is a scarce HAWAII WW2 dollar note Series 1935A red seal silver certificate.  It has several signatures on the back of US GI’s who ended up in the Pacific during WW2.

A Hawaii overprint note is one of a series of banknotes issued during World War II from 1942-1944 as an emergency issue after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The intent of the overprints was to easily distinguish US currency captured by Japanese forces in the event of an invasion of Hawaii and render the bills worthless.
