This photograph, released by Doyle New York, shows the front of an 1880 Hawaiian Islands $10 bank note. The note sold for $268,000 on Thursday in an auction of coins, medals and bills from the estate of Samuel Mills Damon, a banker whose father settled in Hawaii as a missionary.

So the missionaries "settle" hawaii. Toss out all their gods/beliefs. And now their money is worth $268.000? Beutiful. I would give you ten times that for the stuff the "missionaries" burned.

IIRC, on the run up to and during WWII, the US government printed special US currency specifically for use in the Hawaiian islands. The design was the basic US greenback with Hawaii printed on bold across it. This was so that if the islands were overrun by the Japanese, the bills would be useless to them.

So, do you think that 1880 bill would still be legal tender?

Realistically, no. I have no idea what happened to REAL Hawaiian
currency after the "take-over" by the Dole family, et al.

THEORETICALLY, it COULD be LEGAL tender since HI should never
have become a part of the United States, at least in the fashion
that it occurred.
