OF NEW YORK
Fiscal Agent of the United States
Circular No. 2142
November 15, 1940

Public Notice of Offering of $100,000,000, or thereabouts, of Treasury Bills
National Defense Series
Dated November 20, 1940
Maturing February 19, 1941

To all Incorporated Banks and Trust Companies in the
Second Federal Reserve District and Others Concerned:
Following is the text of a notice today made public by the Treasury Department with respect to a new
offering of Treasury bills payable at maturity without interest to be sold on a discount basis to the highest
bidders.
The Secretary of the Treasury gives notice that tenders are invited for Treasury bills to the amount of
$100,000,000, or thereabouts. They will be designated National Defense Series, 91-day bills; and will be
sold on a discount basis to the highest bidders. Tenders will be received at the Federal Reserve Banks, or
the branches thereof, up to two o'clock p.m., Eastern Standard time, on Monday, November 18, 1940. Tenders
will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington.
These bills will be issued pursuant to the provisions of Section 302 of the Revenue Act of 1940, approved
June 25, 1940. Under the authority of that section "National Defense Series" obligations may be issued to
provide the Treasury with funds to meet any expenditures made, after June 30, 1940, for the national
defense, or to reimburse the general fund of the Treasury therefor.
The Treasury bills will be dated November 20, 1940, and will mature on February 19, 1941, and on the
maturity date the face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only,
and in amounts or denominations of $1,000, $10,000, $100,000, $500,000, and $1,000,000 (maturity value).
It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which
will be supplied by the Federal Reserve Banks or branches upon application therefor.
No tender for an amount less than $1,000 will be considered. Each tender must be in multiples of $1,000.
The price offered must be expressed on the basis of 100, with not more than three decimal places, e. g.,
99.125. Fractions must not be used.
Tenders will be accepted without cash deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from
responsible and recognized dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by
a deposit of 10 per cent of the face amount of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied
by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour for receipt of tenders on November 18, 1940, all tenders received at the
Federal Reserve Banks or branches thereof up to the closing hour will be opened and public announcement
of the acceptable prices will follow as soon as possible thereafter, probably on the following morning. The
Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves the right to reject any or all tenders or parts of tenders, and
to allot less than the amount applied for, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Those submitting
tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. Payment at the price offered for Treasury
bills allotted must be made at the Federal Reserve Banks in cash or other immediately available funds on
November 20, 1940.
The Treasury bills will be exempt, as to principal and interest, and any gain from the sale or other disposition thereof will also be exempt, from all taxation, except estate and inheritance taxes. (Attention is
invited to Treasury Decision 4550, ruling that Treasury bills are not exempt from the gift tax.) No loss from
the sale or other disposition of the Treasury bills shall be allowed as a deduction, or otherwise recognized,
for the purposes of any tax now or hereafter imposed by the United States or any of its possessions.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418, as amended, and this notice prescribe the terms of the Treasury
bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal
Reserve Bank or branch thereof.
In accordance with the above announcement tenders will be received at the Securities Department of
this bank (2nd floor, 33 Liberty Street, New York City) or at the Buffalo Branch of this bank (272 Main
Street, Buffalo, New York) until two o'clock p.m., Eastern Standard time, on Monday, November 18, 1940.
It is requested that tenders be submitted on special form and in special envelope enclosed herewith.
Attention is invited to the fact that payment for the Treasury bills cannot be made by credit through the
War Loan Deposit Account. Payment must be made in cash or other immediately available funds.




GEORGE L. HARRISON,

President.
