Printed for use in Hawaii after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, this Series 1935A $1 silver certificates has black overprints of hawaii running vertically at the left and right portions of the face, as well as prominently across the back. 

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.

Series 1935A $1 Hawaii silver certificates tend to come on dark paper. Even choice uncirculated notes can appear darker than normal. That is standard for the series.
