military currency (FRNs, WAR SCRIPT?)

(DOD, NATO) Currency prepared by a power and declared by its military commander to be legal tender for use by civilian and/or military personnel as prescribed in the areas occupied by its forces. It should be of distinctive design to distinguish it from the official currency of the countries concerned, but may be denominated in the monetary unit of either.

: So exactly what do "quotation marks in legal text" mean?
: None of the coins commonly found in circulation meet the
: below requirement.

: Of course the secretary _may_ issue these items and I suppose
: other tokens may be issued by others.

: from USC 31.5112 at Cornell:

: (d)(1) United States coins shall have the inscription "In God We Trust". The obverse side of
: each coin shall have the inscription "Liberty". The reverse side of each coin shall have the
: inscriptions "United States of America" and "E Pluribus Unum" and a designation of the value
: of the coin. The design on the reverse side of the dollar, half dollar, and quarter dollar is an
: eagle. The eagle on the reverse side of the dollar is the symbolic eagle of Apollo 11 landing on
: the moon. The obverse side of the dollar has the likeness of Susan B. Anthony. The coins
: have an inscription of the year of minting or issuance. However, to prevent or alleviate a
: shortage of a denomination, the Secretary may inscribe coins of the denomination with the
: year that was last inscribed on coins of the denomination.
