of subscriptions and payment f o r the securities, the f o r m of registration of the
securities, and other related matters; and

ANNOUNCEMENT B Y T H E S E C R E T A R Y OF T H E T R E A S U R Y
regarding the
THIRD W A R LOAN
Released f o r publication July 22, 1943
Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., announced today that the goal set for the
Third War Loan Drive, starting September 9, will be $15 billion.
Mr. Morgenthau said that the entire $15 billion will be sold to individual investors, corporations, insurance companies and other non-banking sources.
"This goal and the Third War Loan program," he said, "was determined by Treasury officials
after receiving recommendations from chairmen of the State War Finance Committees, and officials
of the Federal Reserve System and the American Bankers Association. Getting this amount of
money will be a huge task, and will represent the largest financing program in the history of
the world.
"The job of raising this $15 billion," he said, "will be handled by War Finance Committees
of each state, and the bonds will be sold largely by hundreds of thousands of patriotic volunteer
salesmen, who already have made plans to concentrate on house-to-house selling, since a major
consideration is increasing the number of people who are buying War Bonds."
The securities to be offered in the Third War Loan, it was pointed out, will be essentially the
same types as those sold in the Second War Loan.
The securities
1. Series
2. Series
3. Series

to be sold under the direction of the War Finance Committees will consist of:
4. 2y 2 % Bonds of 1964-69
E Savings Bonds
F and G Savings Bonds
5. 2% Bonds of 1951-53
C Savings Notes
6.
Certificates of Indebtedness

The 2y2°/o Bond will be dated September 15, 1943, due December 15, 1969, callable December
15, 1964, and will be issued in coupon or registered form at the option of the buyers in denominations from $500 to $1,000,000. Commercial banks, which are defined for this purpose as banks
accepting demand deposits, will not be permitted to own these Bonds until September 15, 1953.
The 2% Bond will be dated September 15, 1943, due September 15, 1953, callable September
15, 1951, and will be issued in coupon or registered form at the option of the buyers in denominations from $500 to $1,000,000.
The
Certificates of Indebtedness will be dated September 15, 1943, due September 1, 1944,
and will be issued in denominations of $1,000 to $1,000,000, and in coupon form only.
None of these securities will be available for subscription by commercial banks for their own
account during the period of the Drive. However, shortly after the Drive terminates, a 2 per cent
Bond and a
per cent Certificate of Indebtedness will be offered for subscription by commercial
banks for their own account. In order to confine all sales in the Drive to non-banking sources,
the Treasury will request commerical banks not to buy in the market, and will request the market
not to trade in, either of these securities offered in the Drive until the books for bank subscriptions are closed.
T o avoid unnecessary transfers of funds from one locality to another, the Treasury would prefer
to have all subscriptions by corporations and firms entered and paid for through the banking institutions where the funds are located.
(An announcement by the Secretary of the Treasury regarding the Third War Loan and the refunding of
the 3 % % Treasury Bonds of 1943-45, released for publication August 16, 1943, is reproduced on page 44 of this
circular.)

Restrictions on subscriptions by commercial banks
None of the securities other than the Treasury Savings Notes of Series C* will be available for subscription by commercial banks (banks accepting demand deposits) for their own account during the period of
the drive. The Treasury has announced, however, that shortly after the drive terminates, a 2% bond and
a % % certificate of indebtedness will be offered for exclusive subscription by commercial banks for their
own account. Promptly upon announcement by the Treasury of the terms of such offerings, full details
and appropriate subscription forms will be furnished to all commercial banks.
In order to confine all sales in the drive to nonbanking sources, the Treasury has requested commercial banks not to purchase, and subscribers not to trade in, the 2°/o Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 and the % %
Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series E-1944 until ten days after the close of the drive, or until
the books for subscriptions by commercial banks to the new offerings referred to in the preceding paragraph are closed, whichever is earlier.
The 2Y2% Treasury Bonds of 1964-69 may not be held by commercial banks for their own account,
and may not be pledged to secure deposits of public moneys, before September 15, 1953.
Receipt of applications for securities and submission of subscriptions
During the drive, banking institutions will receive applications addressed to them, on forms provided by
the State War Finance Committees, for securities to be purchased for account of customers and others. These
forms should not be forwarded to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York but should be retained by the
banking institution. In cases of applications for Series E War Savings Bonds, the banking institution
should issue the bonds directly; in cases of applications for any other securities, the banking institution
should submit to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York a subscription on the appropriate subscription
form furnished by the Federal Reserve Bank.
Subscriptions for 2y2% Treasury Bonds of 1964-69, 2% Treasury Bonds of 1951-53, and % % Treasury
Certificates of Indebtedness of Series E-1944, for account of customers may be submitted only by banking
institutions. Security dealers, brokers, savings and loan associations and others may not enter subscriptions to such issues for account of customers except through banking institutions.
Subscriptions for Treasury Savings Notes of Series C for account of customers may be submitted by
banking institutions and security dealers.
* Any such notes purchased by commercial banks bear interest only if used in the payment of Federal taxes.




Page 3

Subscriptions for Series E War Savings Bonds may be filled directly by any organization duly authorized to issue such bonds. Subscriptions for Series F and Series G Savings Bonds for account of customers
may be submitted to the Federal Reserve Bank by any banking institution or by any other organization
authorized to issue Series E bonds.
Any purchaser may submit a subscription for his own account directly to the Federal Reserve Bank
of New York. In order, however, to permit the full use of War Loan Deposit Accounts and to minimize
the amount of accrued interest payable, customers and others should be encouraged to submit their subscriptions through banking institutions.
Subscriptions submitted to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York should be made on the official
forms furnished by it. The appropriate forms for use in subscribing to each type of security offered,
are as follows:

A sample of each of these forms is enclosed; additional supplies will be furnished to all banking institutions
in advance of the opening of the Third "War Loan Drive.
Payment for securities
Subscriptions must be accompanied by payment in full. However, since life insurance companies
receive substantial funds at a steady and predictable rate, the Treasury has provided that companies whose
principal business is the writing of life insurance may make payment, at par and accrued interest, not
later than November 1, 1943, for 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1964-69 and 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1951-53
subscribed for by them during the drive. Instructions with respect to the submission of subscriptions by
life insurance companies which elect to make deferred payment will be furnished to each life insurance
company having its principal office in the Second Federal Reserve District.
Banking institutions qualified as special depositaries of public moneys under Treasury Department
Circular No. 92 (Revised) may pay the full purchase price (both principal and accrued interest) of all
securities subscribed for during the drive by credit to their War Loan Deposit Accounts. Although the
2i/ 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1964-69, the 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 and the % % Treasury Certificates
of Indebtedness of Series E-1944 will be dated September 15, 1943, the credit may be entered in a War
Loan Deposit Account on or after September 9, 1943, the date of the opening of the drive. Qualified
depositaries are urged to make full use of their War Loan Deposit Accounts.
Any member bank of the Federal Reserve System or any nonmember clearing bank may pay for securities by authorizing a charge to the reserve account or nonmember clearing account maintained by it with
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Any banking institution may pay for securities by check. Checks should be drawn by the banking
institution either to the order of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York or to the order of the Treasurer
of the United States. Checks drawn by others to the order of the banking institution and endorsed by it
to the order of the Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasurer of the United States will not be accepted.
Calculation and payment of accrued interest
The 21/2% Treasury Bonds of 1964-69, the 2 % Treasury Bonds
tificates of Indebtedness of Series E-1944 will be dated September
accrued interest from September 15 to the date payment is received
that accrued interest is waived on $500 and $1,000 subscriptions to

of 1951-53 and the % % Treasury Cer15, 1943, and will be sold at par plus
by the Federal Reserve Bank, except
the 2 % % Treasury Bonds of 1964-69

The date 011 which payment is received by the Federal Reserve Bank will depend upon the method by
which payment for the subscription is made by the banking institution, that is:
If payment is made by credit to "War Loan Deposit Account, payment is considered received on the
date the account is credited; and accrued interest should be paid to that date.
If payment is made by charge to a reserve account or nonmember clearing account maintained with
the Federal Reserve Bank, payment is considered received on the date the authorization to charge
the account is received by the Federal Reserve Bank; and accrued interest should be paid to that date.
If payment is made by check drawn on the Federal Reserve Bank, accrued interest should be
paid to the date such cheek is received by the Federal Reserve Bank.
If payment is made by check drawn on a bank other than the Federal Reserve Bank, accrued
interest should be paid to the date on which funds in payment of such check will be available to the
Federal Reserve Bank in the normal course of collection.
A savings bank may minimize the amount of accrued interest on subscriptions submitted for its
own account or for account of customers by entering such subscriptions through its correspondent bank
and making arrangements for the correspondent to pay by credit to its War Loan Deposit Account.
No accrued interest is payable on subscriptions for Savings Bonds of Series E, F or G or Treasury
Savings Notes of Series C. Where subscriptions for such securities are submitted to the Federal Reserve
Bank at the end of the month, it is important that the following instructions be observed in order to assure
the issuance of the securities dated as of the first day of that month:
If payment is made by credit to War Loan Deposit Account, the credit should be entered not
later than the last business day of the month, and the subscription form and advice of such credit
should be mailed to the Federal Reserve Bank on the day of entry.
If payment is made by charge to a reserve account or nonmember clearing account maintained
with the Federal Reserve Bank, the subscription form and authorization to make such charge should
be received by the Federal Reserve Bank not later than the last business day of the month.
* The date of closing of the drive has not yet been announced by the Treasury.




Page 5

If payment for Savings Bonds is made by cheek, the subscription form and check should be
received by the Federal Reserve Bank not later than the last business day of the month.
If payment for Treasury Savings Notes is made by check, the subscription form and the check
should be received by the Federal Reserve Bank in sufficient time so that the proceeds of collection of
the check will be available to the Federal Reserve Bank in finally collected funds not later than the
last business day of the month.
Registration of securities
In all cases, the registration should express the true ownership of the security, that is, full legal title
with complete power of disposition; registration is not permitted in the name of an agent, nominee or
attorney-in-fact.
The registration of securities in the name of a woman should include the prefix Miss or Mrs., and the
Christian name of a married woman should be given, e.g. "Mrs. Mary B. D o e " , not "Mrs. John A. D o e " .
The regulations regarding the registration of United States Savings Bonds differ from those regarding the registration of other Government securities.
United States Savings Bonds of Series E, F and G are not transferable and are issued in registered form
only. The permissible forms of registration for each series are set forth in detail in Subpart B of Treasury
Department Circular No. 530, Fifth Revision, as amended, which appears on pages 22 and 23 of this
circular.
The 2Y2% Treasury Bonds of 1964-69 and the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 are issued in either
registered or coupon form. Such bonds may be registered in the name o f —
one individual, e.g. "Mrs. Mary B. D o e " ;
two individuals as coowners without right of survivorship, e.g. " J o h n A. Doe or Mrs. Mary B. Doe,
or either of t h e m " ;
two individuals as joint owners with right of survivorship, e.g. " J o h n A. Doe and Mrs. Mary B. Doe,
or the survivor";
a corporation, e.g. "Smith and Jones, Inc., a corporation";
a partnership, e.g.'' Smith & Doe, a partnership'';

I

an unincorporated association, lodge, society, or similar body, e.g.'' The Lotus Club, an unincorporated
association";
a fiduciary, e.g. " J o h n A. Smith, trustee under will of John B. Doe, deceased";
a custodian of public funds, e.g. "Treasurer, City of Buffalo, New Y o r k " .
In all cases, the complete post-office address (including the postal unit number, if any) of the registered
owner should be given in order to assure the proper mailing of interest checks.
The % % Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness

of Series E-1944 are issued in coupon form only.

Treasury Savings Notes, Series C, are not transferable and are inscribed in the name of a single owner.
The name should be in the same form as that used by the purchaser in making his Federal tax returns.
Where two individuals make a joint tax return, the notes should be inscribed in the name of one of them.
If the notes are purchased only for investment by an entity which does not make Federal tax returns as
such (e.g. a partnership), the application should state that the purchaser does not intend to use the notes
in payment of taxes and is purchasing them only for investment.
If questions arise concerning forms of registration not specifically covered by this summary or by the
following Treasury circulars, it is suggested that they be referred directly to the Federal Reserve Bank.
Limitations on amount of purchases
There is no limitation on the amount which any eligible investor may buy of the 2 y 2 % Treasury
Bonds of 1964-69, the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1951-53, the % % Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of
Series E-1944, or the Treasury Savings Notes, Series C.
In the case of War Savings Bonds of Series E, the amount of bonds of such series issued during any
one calendar year (January 1—December 31) that may be held by any one person at any one time is
Page 6



limited to $5,000 (maturity value). Additional holdings are permitted, however, in certain circumstances
where bonds are registered in coownership form. In the case of Series E bonds so registered, no excess
exists if in a particular group of coowners the holdings are such that the entire amount held can be allocated among the several coowners without apportioning an aggregate amount in excess of $5,000 (maturity
value) to any one person, including any amount chargeable to that person individually. For example, if
a married man with two children has already purchased in 1943 $5,000 maturity value of bonds registered
in his own name, and his wife and children are not named as the registered owners or coowners of any
Series E bonds issued this year, he may purchase an additional $15,000 maturity value of such bonds
registered as follows: $5,000 in his name with his wife as coowner, $5,000 in his name with one child as
coowner, and $5,000 in his name with the other child as coowner.
The amount of Savings Bonds of either Series F or Series G, or of the combined aggregate of both,
issued during any one calendar year (January 1—December 31) that may be held by any one person,
whether registered in his name individually or as a coowner, at any one time is $100,000 (issue price).
Subscriptions to be entered where funds are located
The respective State quotas making up the 15 billion dollar goal for nonbanking subscriptions in the
Third War Loan Drive are based in large measure upon the location of bank deposits. For this reason, and
to avoid disturbances to bank reserve positions which might otherwise occur through unnecessary shifts of
deposit balances from one part of the country to another, or from one institution to another, subscribers to
Government securities should enter their subscriptions through the banks where their funds are on deposit.
The transfer of funds for the purpose of making a subscription not only constitutes a possible disturbance to bank reserve positions but customarily involves substantial and unnecessary work on the part
of the persons involved. A transfer of funds merely in order that the transferee bank may, through the
use of a War Loan Deposit Account, obtain the advantage of the temporary use of additional reserves, at the
expense of other banks, is not good practice and involves the war loan deposit account mechanism in a use
for which it is not intended. These transfers serve no proper purpose which cannot be accomplished by
statistical allocations of credit for sales.
Credit for sales
Detailed reports of sales according to geographical distribution will be submitted daily by the Federal
Reserve Bank to the Chairman of the War Finance Committee in each of the States in the Second Federal
Reserve District. Any questions regarding local quotas or sales credits should be referred to the local chairman of the War Finance Committee.
Credit for sales of Series E War Savings Bonds issued by an agent other than the Federal Reserve
Bank of New York will in general be given to the county in which such agent is situated.
Credit for sales of Series E War Savings Bonds issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and
for sales of Savings Bonds of Series F or G will in general be given to the county indicated by the addresses
of the registered owners.
Credit for sales of all other issues offered in the drive will normally be given to the counties indicated
by the addresses of the purchasers appearing on the subscription forms received by the Federal Reserve
Bank of New York, except that credit for subscriptions entered through banking institutions located in
New York City for account of nonbanking corporations other than insurance companies will be given to
New York City. If a purchaser so desires, credit for the sale of any of these issues may be given, subject
to the following limitations, to a county or counties other than the county to which credit would normally
be given:
1. The subscription form received by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York should be accompanied
by a separate letter setting forth the name and address of the purchaser and the total amount of
his subscription, and listing the allocations desired by city or county, state and amount;
2. Not less than $50,000 may be allocated to any one county; and
3. No allocation may be made in respect of a sale to an insurance company.
The Treasury reserves the right to adjust or reduce the amount of transfers of credit for subscriptions
between States.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS AND THEIR ANSWERS
regarding the
2i/ 2 % TREASURY BONDS OF 1964-69
2 % TREASURY BONDS OF 1951-53
and
% % TREASURY CERTIFICATES OF INDEBTEDNESS OF SERIES E-1944

1. First Coupon
What is the term of the first coupon on each of
these issues?
I n the case of the 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1964-69,
the first coupon will be for a three months' period and
thereafter interest will be paid on a semiannual basis on
June 15 and December 15.
In the case of the 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1951-53,
interest will be paid on a semiannual basis on March 15
and September 15, and therefore the first coupon will
be for a six months' period.
In the case of the
Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series E-1944, the first coupon will be
for a period of approximately five and one-half months
and the second coupon for a six months' period.

2.

Subscriptions

(a) Should the names and addresses of customers be
given on the reverse side of the official subscription form furnished banking institutions by the
Federal Reserve Bank of New York?
YES.

(b) May brokers and dealers enter subscriptions for
account of customers?
N O T directly with the Federal Reserve Banks but they
may enter them through a banking institution. The
banking institution should enter the subscription on the
official subscription form furnished by the Federal
Reserve Bank.
(c) How soon will the securities be delivered on
subscriptions?
I N the case of coupon securities, probably within four
or five days following receipt of the subscription and
full payment. Subscriptions for registered securities
are forwarded to Washington to be filled and deliveries
will take somewhat longer.

(e) May there be more than one delivery instruction
on a subscription?
A . SEPARATE subscription should be submitted for each
group of securities as to which different delivery instructions are given. No changes in delivery instructions will be accepted.

(f) If a bank pays for these issues by credit to the War
Loan Deposit Account on its books, may the
credit be entered prior to September 15, 1943?
Y ES. If a bank so desires, it may enter the credit on or
after September 9, 1943, even though each of the issues
is dated September 15, 1943.

3.

General

(a) When will the books close for the receipt of subscriptions for these issues?
T H E closing date has not been announced by the Secretary of the Treasury. However, it has been indicated
that the subscription books will remain open for several
weeks. Approximately one week's advance notice was
given prior to the closing of the books in the previous
drives.
(b) On a subscription for more than $1,000 of the
2% Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 or the 2 % %
Treasury Bonds of 1964-69, is it necessary to pay
accrued interest on the entire amount or only on
the amount in excess of $1,000?
0 N the entire amount. Accrued interest will be waived
only on $500 and $1,000 subscriptions. For example,
on a subscription for $10,000, accrued interest on the
entire $10,000 must be paid. The waiver of interest on
subscriptions for $500 and $1,000 is for the convenience
of the small investor.
(c) Must subscriptions to the 2% Treasury Bonds of
1951-53 and the 2 % % Treasury Bonds of 1964-69
be in multiples of S500 and subscriptions to the
% % Treasurv Certificates of Indebtedness of
Series E-1944 "be in multiples of $1,000?

(d) Banks will be receiving from their customers applications for the various issues on application
forms provided by the War Finance Committee.
Should these forms be sent to the Federal Reserve
Bank of New York?

YES.

N o . Banks should retain these forms for their records
and submit subscriptions on behalf of their customers
on the official forms provided by the Federal Reserve
Bank of New York. Duplicate subscriptions should
not be filed with the Federal Reserve Bank.

Page 8


These are the smallest denominations available.

(d) If a subscriber enters subscriptions to more than
one issue and elects to pay by check, can one
check be drawn covering all of the subscriptions?
as various types of securities are handled in
different parts of the Federal Reserve Bank of New
York, it will greatly facilitate the handling of subscriptions if a separate check is drawn for each issue for
which a subscription is entered.

2. United States Savings Bonds of Series E include bonds issued as Defense Savings Bonds
under this circular as originally published, and those issued as War Savings Bonds under this circular
as revised. The former bonds will be withdrawn from sale when existing stocks are exhausted, and
the new bonds will then be placed on sale without further notice, and their sale will continue until
terminated by the Secretary of the Treasury. As their terms and the conditions of their issue are
identical, no distinction is to be made between any bonds of Series E, whether issued as Defense or
as War Savings Bonds.
II. D E S C R I P T I O N A N D T E R M S O F B O N D S

1. The bonds of Series E will be issued only in registered form, in denominations of $25, $50,
$100, $500 and $1,000 (maturity values), at prices hereinafter set forth. Each bond will bear the facsimile signature of the Secretary of the Treasury, and will bear both an imprint (in red) and an
impression of the Seal of the Treasury. At the time of issue, the issuing agent will inscribe the
name and address of the owner on each bond, will enter the date as of which the bond is issued in
the upper right corner, and will imprint his dating stamp (with current date) in the circle in the
lower left corner. Bonds of Series E shall be valid only if duly inscribed and dated, as above provided, and delivered by an authorized agent following receipt of payment therefor.
2. The bonds will, in each instance, be dated as of the first day of the month in which payment
of the issue price is received by an agent authorized to issue the bonds; the bonds will mature and be
payable at face value 10 years from such issue date. The bonds may not be called for redemption by
the Secretary of the Treasury prior to maturity, but they may be redeemed prior to maturity, after
60 days from the issue date, at the owner's option, at fixed redemption values. No interest as such
will be paid on the bonds, but they will increase in redemption value at the end of the first year from
issue date, and at the end of each successive half-year period thereafter until their maturity, when
the face amount becomes payable. The increment in value will be payable only upon redemption of
1 United States Savings Bonds of Series F and G, issued pursuant to Department Circular No. 654, Revised, dated June 1, 1942, are also
included in the designation United States War Savings Bonds.
(The designation of bonds of Series F and G as United States War Savings Bonds has been revoked. Such bonds are now designated as
United States Savings Bonds.)




Page 9

the bonds. A table of redemption values for each bond appears on its face. The purchase price
of bonds of Series E has been fixed so as to afford an investment yield of about 2.9 percent per annum
compounded semiannually if the bonds are held to maturity; if the owner exercises his option to
redeem a bond prior to maturity the investment yield will be less. The table at the end of this circular shows: (1) How bonds of Series E, by denominations, increase in redemption value during
the successive half-year periods following issue, and (2) the computed investment yields (a) on the
issue price from issue date to the beginning of each half-year period, and (&) on the current redemption value from the beginning of each half-year period to maturity at the end of the 10-year period.
3. The bonds will not be transferable, and will be payable only to the owner named thereon,
except in case of death or disability of the owner or as otherwise specifically provided in the regulations governing savings bonds, and in any event only in accordance with such regulations. Accordingly they may not be sold, and may not be hypothecated as collateral for a loan.
4. TAXATION.—For the purpose of determining taxes and tax exemptions, the increment in value
represented by the difference between the price paid for United States Savings Bonds issued on a
discount basis, and the redemption value received therefor (whether at or before maturity) shall be
considered as interest, and such interest on bonds of Series E is not exempt from income or profits
taxes now or hereafter imposed by the United States.2 The bonds shall be subject to estate, inheritance, gift, or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt from all taxation now
or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of
the United States, or by any local taxing authority.

OTHER SERIES
United States Savings Bonds of Series F and of Series G are also offered for sale concurrently
with bonds of Series E. The bonds of Series F will be issued on a discount basis, with a 12-year
maturity, at 74 percent of their maturity value; if held to maturity the yield will approximate 2.53
percent per annum. The bonds of Series G, likewise with a 12-year maturity, will be issued at par,
and will bear interest at the rate of 2 % percent per annum payable semiannually. The bonds of
both series will be redeemable before maturity, at the option of owners, at fixed redemption values,
in which case the investment yields will be less than if held to maturity. These bonds are intended
to provide facilities for the larger investors, and registration will not be restricted to individuals.
The aggregate amount of bonds of either series, or of the two series combined, originally issued to
any one person during any one calendar year that may be held by that person at any one time may
not exceed $100,000 (issue price). Full particulars regarding these bonds are set forth in Treasury
Department Circular No. 654, Revised, dated June 1, 1942, copies of which may be obtained from the
Treasury Department, Washington, or from any Federal Reserve Bank.

O F F E R I N G OF U N I T E D STATES SAVINGS BONDS OF SERIES F A N D SERIES G

1. The Secretary of the Treasury, pursuant to the authority of the Second Liberty Bond Act, as
amended, offers for sale, to the people of the United States, through the Federal Reserve Banks,
United States Savings Bonds of Series F and Series G, which bonds are hereby designated United
States War* Savings Bonds,1 and may hereinafter be referred to as bonds of Series F and Series G.
Descriptions of the bonds of both series, their terms, and the conditions of their issue and redemption are hereinafter fully set forth.
2. United States Savings Bonds of Series F and G include bonds issued as bonds of Defense
Series F and G under this circular as originally published and amended, and those issued as War*
Savings Bonds under this circular as revised. The former bonds will be withdrawn from sale when
existing stocks are exhausted, and the new bonds will then be placed on sale without further notice,
and their sale will continue until terminated by the Secretary of the Treasury. As their terms and
the conditions of their issue are identical, no distinction is to be made between any bonds of Series
F or G, whether issued as bonds of Defense Series F or G or as War* Savings Bonds.
II. D E S C R I P T I O N A N D T E R M S O F B O N D S

1. The bonds of Series F and Series G will be issued only in registered form, in denominations
of $25 (for Series F only), $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 (maturity values) at prices hereinafter set forth. Each bond will bear the facsimile signature of the Secretary of the Treasury, and
will bear both an imprint in color (brown for Series F and blue for Series G) and an impression of
the Seal of the Treasury. At the time of issue, the issuing agent will inscribe the name and address
of the owner on each bond, will enter the date as of which the bond is issued in the upper right corner, and will imprint his dating stamp (with current date) in the circle in the lower left corner.
The bonds shall be valid only if duly inscribed and dated, as above provided, and delivered by an
authorized agent following receipt of payment therefor.
2. The bonds of each series will, in each instance, be dated as of the first day of the month in
which payment of the issue price is received by an agent authorized to issue the bonds (see Sec. I l l ) ;
1 United States Savings Bonds of Series E, issued pursuant to Department Circular No. 653, Revised, dated June 1, 1942, are also
included in the designation United States War Savings Bonds.
(* The designation of bonds of Series F and Series G as United States War Savings Bonds having been revoked, this circular
was amended by First Amendment, dated November 30, 1942, effective December 1, 1942, "by striking out any reference to or designation
of such bonds as War Savings Bonds."
Accordingly they are now designated as United States Savings BondsJ

Page 14



the bonds will mature and be payable at face value 12 years from such issue date. The bonds of
either series may not be called for redemption by the Secretary of the Treasury prior to maturity, but
they may be redeemed prior to maturity, after six months from the issue date, at the owner's option,
at fixed redemption values, as hereinafter provided.
3. Bonds of Series F will be issued on a discount basis at 74 percent of their maturity value. No
interest as such will be paid on the bonds, but they will increase in redemption value at the end of
the first year from issue date, and at the end of each successive half-year period thereafter until their
maturity, when the face amount becomes payable. The increment in value will be payable only upon
redemption of the bonds. A table of redemption values for each bond appears on its face. The purchase price of bonds of Series F has been fixed so as to afford an investment yield of about 2.53 percent per annum compounded semiannually if the bonds are held to maturity; if the owner exercises
his option to redeem a bond prior to maturity the investment yield will be less.
4. Bonds of Series G will be issued at par, and will bear interest at the rate of 2 % percent per
annum, payable semiannually from date of issue. Interest will be paid by check drawn to the order
of the registered owner and mailed to his address. Interest will cease at maturity, or, in case of
redemption before maturity, at the end of the interest period next preceding the date of redemption. A table of redemption values for each bond appears on its face, and the difference between
the face amount of the bond and the redemption value fixed for any period represents an adjustment
(or refund) of interest. Accordingly, if the owner exercises his option to redeem a bond prior to
maturity, the investment yield will be less than the interest rate on the bonds. Bonds of Series G
may be redeemed at par (1) upon the death of the owner, or a coowner, if a natural person, or (2),
as to bonds held by a trustee or other fiduciary, upon the death of any person which results in termination of the trust, in whole or in part. If the trust is terminated only in part, redemption at par
will be made only to the extent of the pro rata portion of the trust so terminated, to the next lower
multiple of $100. In any ease request for redemption at par must be made within 4 months after the
date of death and in accordance with the regulations governing savings bonds.
5. Tables at the end of this circular show separately for bonds of Series F and those of Series
G: (1) The redemption values, by denominations, during the successive half-year periods following
issue, and (2) the computed investment yields (a) on the issue price from issue date to the beginning
of each half-year period, and (&) on the current redemption value from the beginning of each halfyear period to maturity at the end of the 12-year period.
6. The bonds will not be transferable, and will be payable only to the owner named thereon,
except in case of death or disability of the owner or as otherwise specifically provided in the regulations governing savings bonds, and in any event only in accordance with such regulations. Accordingly they may not be sold, and may not be hypothecated as collateral for a loan.
7. Taxation.—For the purpose of determining taxes and tax exemptions, the increment in
value of savings bonds of Series F represented by the difference between the price paid and the
redemption value received therefor (whether at or before maturity) shall be considered as interest,
and such interest on such bonds of Series F, and interest on bonds of Series G, is not exempt from
income or profits taxes now or hereafter imposed by the United States.2 The bonds shall be subject
to estate, inheritance, gift, or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt from
all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the
possessions of the United States, or by any local taxing authority.

similarly designated by the series letter, F or G, followed by the year of issue.
IX.

GENERAL

PROVISIONS

1. All bonds of Series F and Series G, issued pursuant to this circular, shall be subject to the
regulations prescribed from time to time by the Secretary of the Treasury to govern United States

2. The Secretary of the Treasury reserves the right to reject any application for savings bonds
of either Series F or Series G, in whole or in part, and to refuse to issue or permit to be issued hereunder any such savings bonds in any case or any class or classes of cases if he deems such action to
be in the public interest, and his action in any such respect shall be final.
3. Federal Reserve Banks, as fiscal agents of the United States, are authorized to perform such
services as may be requested of them by the Secretary of the Treasury in connection with the issue,
delivery, safekeeping, redemption, and payment of savings bonds of Series F and Series G.

was amended by First Amendment, dated November 30, 1942, effective December 1, 1942, "by striking out any reference to or designation
of such bonds as War Savings Bonds."
Accordingly they are now designated as United States Savings BondsJ

SAVINGS

BONDS, AND

OTHERS

CONCERNED:

Department Circular No. 530, Fourth Revision, Dated April 15, 1941 (6 F. R. 2191), as amended, is hereby further amended
and issued as a Fifth Revision to read as follows:
The following regulations governing United States Savings Bonds are published for the information and guidance of all
concerned:
Subpart A—APPLICABILITY
Sec. 315.1. Applicability of regulations.—These regulations apply generally to all United States Savings Bonds of all 6eries
of whatever designation and bearing any issue dates whatever except as otherwise specifically provided herein.
Subpart B—REGISTRATION
Sec. 315.2. General.—United States Savings Bonds will be issued only in registered form. The name and complete post office
address of the owner, as well as the name of the coowner or designated beneficiary, if any, and the date as of which the bond is issued
will be inscribed thereon at the time of issue by an authorized issuing agent.1 The form of registration used must express the
actual ownership of and interest in the bond and, except as otherwise specifically provided in these regulations, will be considered
as conclusive of such ownership and interest. The Treasury Department can recognize no notices of adverse claims to savings
bonds and will enter no stoppages or caveats against payment in accordance with the registration of the bonds. No designation of
an attorney, agent or other representative to request or receive payment on behalf of the owner, nor any restriction on the right
of such owner to receive payment of the bond, other than as provided in these regulations, may be made in the registration or
otherwise.
Sec. 315.3. Restrictions.—Only residents (whether individuals or others) of the United States (which for the purposes of
this section shall include the territories, insular possessions and Canal Zone), citizens of the United States temporarily residing
abroad, and nonresident aliens employed in the United States by the Federal Government or an agency thereof, may be named as
owners, coowners or designated beneficiaries on bonds originally issued on or after April 1, 1940, or on authorized reissues thereof:
Provided, however, That on original issues of bonds, but not on reissues, a nonresident alien (not a citizen of an enemy nation)
may be named as coowner or designated beneficiary, and Provided further, That a nonresident alien, whether owner, coowner or
beneficiary succeeding to title on the death of the owner, or succeeding to title upon the death of a surviving coowner or beneficiary,
will be entitled only to request and receive payment either at or before maturity.2
Sec. 315.4. Authorised forms of registration, Series E.—Bonds of Series E may be registered only in the names of individuals
(natural persons), whether adults or minors, in their own right in one of the following forms of registration:
(a) ONE PERSON: In the name of one person, for example:
' 1 John A. Jones.''
(&) Two P E R S O N S — C O O W N E R S H I P
owners, for example:

FORM:

In the names of two (but not more than two) persons in the alternative as co-

" J o h n A. Jones OR Mrs. Ella S. Jones."
No other form of registration establishing coownership is authorized.
( c ) Two P E R S O N S — B E N E F I C I A R Y FORM:: In the name of one (but not more than one) person, payable on death to one (but
not more than one) other person, for example:
" J o h n A. Jones, payable on death to Miss Mary E. Jones.*'
"Payable on death t o " may be abbreviated as " p . o. d . " The first person named is hereinafter referred to as the owner
or registered owner, and the second person named as the beneficiary or designated beneficiary. If it is desired that
a bond revert to the United States upon the death of the owner as a donation, it may be registered in the name of the
owner with the Treasurer of the United States named as beneficiary.
The full name of the owner and that of the coowner or beneficiary, if any, should be used and should be the name by which the
person is ordinarily known and under which he does business; if there are two given names the initial of one may be used, and
if a person is habitually known and does business by initial only of his given names, registration may be in such form. The name
may be preceded by any applicable title such as ' ' D r . " , " Rev.'', etc., and in the case of women should be preceded by *1 Mrs.'' or
" M i s s " . A married woman's own name should be used, not that of her husband, for example, " M r s . Mary A. Jones", not " M r s .
Frank B. Jones". A minor, whether or not under legal guardianship, may be named as owner or coowner if the bonds are purchased as a gift to him and a minor may name a coowner or beneficiary on bonds purchased by him from his wages, earnings or
other money in his possession; but bonds purchased by a parent or guardian with funds already belonging to a minor must be
registered in the minor's name alone without the addition of a coowner or beneficiary. If a person named in the registration of
the bond is under legal disability and a guardian or similar representative of his estate has been appointed by a court or is otherwise
legally qualified, the registration should indicate such facts by the addition of appropriate words, for example, " F r a n k Jones, a
minor under legal guardianship of Henry Smith". Bonds should not be registered in the name of a person under disability for
reasons other than minority unless a legal representative of his estate has been appointed.
See. 315.5. Authorised forms of registration, Series F and G.—Bonds of Series F or G may be registered in the names of individuals in their own right as set forth in Sec. 315.4 above, and subject to the same conditions as therein set forth. Bonds of
these two series may also be registered in the names of fiduciaries, corporations, associations or partnerships, except that they may
1 The date of maturity is also inscribed on Savings Bonds of Series A , Series B, and Series D.
2 Under the terms of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, and the regulations issued thereunder, bonds may not be issued or paid to nationals
(as defined in said Order) of blocked countries or to nationals of enemy countries, whether or not residing in the United States, unless such nationals
are generally or specially licensed under the terms of the Order.

Page 22



not be registered in the names of commercial banks, that is, banks accepting demand deposits in the usual and general course
of business. The following forms are authorized for such registration:
(a) Executors, administrators, guardians, etc.—In the name of one or more executors, administrators, guardians, conservators or other representatives of a single estate appointed by a court of competent jurisdiction or otherwise legally
qualified, all of whose names must be included in the registration, followed by adequate identifying reference to the
estate, for example:
" J o h n Smith, executor of the will (or administrator of the estate) of Henry J. Smith, deceased", or "William
C. Jones, guardian (or conservator, etc.) of the estate of James D. Brown, a minor (or an incompetent)".
If a guardian or other legal representative holds a common fund for the account of two or more estates or wards,
bonds should be registered in the name of the representative for each such estate or ward separately, even though
the representative was appointed in a single proceeding. A father or mother, as such, or as natural guardian, is not
considered a fiduciary for purposes of registration.
(b)

Trustees.—In the name or names of one or more trustees or other fiduciaries of a single duly constituted trust estate,
which will be considered as an entity, followed by adequate identifying reference to the trust instrument or other
authority creating the trust, for example:
" J o h n C. Brown and the First National Bank, trustees under the will of Henry C. Brown, deceased", or " T h e
Second National Bank, trustee under an agreement with George E. White, dated February 1, 1935".
The names of all trustees must be given, unless they are too numerous, act as a board, or hold office for a limited period
of time. Registration may be in the title without the names of the trustees in the case of unincorporated lodges,
churches, societies or similar organizations, title to whose property is held by trustees, and in the case of public officers,
corporations or bodies acting as trustees under express authority of law, for example:
"Trustees of the First Baptist Church, Akron, Ohio, an unincorporated association", or "Treasurer of the
State of Nebraska, in trust for the policyholders of X Corporation, under Section
of Nebraska Statutes'
If the instrument or other authority creating the trust establishes a board of trustees acting as a board and not as
individuals, registration may be in the name of the board as such, for example:
" B o a r d of Trustees for the State Hospital for the Insane, under Section
of Nebraska Statutes".
Registration may not be made in the names of trustees under an agreement or other instrument purporting to create
a trust where the funds used represent merely security for the performance of an obligation, except under a statute
the terms of which expressly create an actual trust relationship.

(c) Pension or retirement funds, etc.—Registration may be made in the names and title, or title alone, of trustees of a pension
or retirement fund or of an investment, savings, insurance, annuity, or similar fund or trust, but in all such cases the
fund will be regarded as an entity regardless of the number of beneficiaries or the manner in which their respective
interests are established or determined. Segregation of individual shares as a matter of bookkeeping or as a result
of individual agreements with beneficiaries will not operate to constitute separate trusts under these regulations.
(d) Private corporations and associations.—In the name of any private organization, whether incorporated or unincorporated (except commercial banks as hereinbefore defined), using in each case the full legal name of the organization
without mention of any officer or member but making reference, if desired, to a particular bookkeeping account or fund
(not a trust), as follows:
(1) A private corporation, followed by the words " a corporation", for example: "Smith Manufacturing Company,
a corporation";
(2) An unincorporated association, lodge, church or society, or similar body, followed by the words " a n unincorporated association", for example: " T h e Lotus Club, an unincorporated association". The term " a n unincorporated association" should not be used to describe a trust fund, a partnership or a business conducted
under a trade name;
(3) A partnership, considered as an entity, followed by the words " a partnership", for example: "Smith and
Brown, a partnership".
(e) States and public corporations.—In the full legal name or title of the owner or custodian of public funds, other than
trust funds, as follows:
(1) Any sovereignty, as a State, or any public corporation, as a county, city, town or school district, for example: "State of Maine", or " T o w n of Rye, New Y o r k " .
(2) Any board, commission or other public body duly constituted by law, for example: "Maryland State Highway
Commission'
(3) Any public officer designated by title only, for example: "Treasurer, City of Chicago".
Registration may include reference to a particular bookkeeping account, if desired.
(/) Schools.—Registration is not authorized in the name of an unincorporated or public school, or class or activity thereof.
Bonds held for the benefit of such school, class or activity should be registered in the name of a school principal or
other school officer, as trustee, by title only, for example: "Principal, Western High School, in trust for Class of 1940
Library F u n d " ; a written agreement of trust will not be required in cases of small amounts.
Sec. 315.6. Unauthorized registration.—Savings bonds inscribed in a form not substantially in agreement with those authorized by this subpart will not be considered as validly issued and will be accepted only for a refund of the purchase price, except
in those cases in which reissue can be made under the provisions of these regulations.
Sec. 315.7. Forms of registration on reissue.—Bonds reissued under the provisions of these regulations may be reissued in
any form of registration permitted by the regulations in effect on the date of original issue.
Subpart C—LIMITATION ON TRANSFER
Sec. 315.8. Not transferable.—United States Savings Bonds are not transferable and are payable only to the owners named
thereon except in case of the disability or death of the owner or as otherwise specifically provided herein, but in any event only in
accordance with the provisions of these regulations. Accordingly, savings bonds may not be sold or hypothecated as collateral
for a loan and may not be used as security for the performance of an obligation except as expressly provided in these regulations.




Page 23

Subpart D—LIMITATION ON HOLDINGS
Sec. 315.9. Amount which may he held.—As provided by section 22 of the Second Liberty Bond Act, as added February 4,
1935 (U. S. C. 1940 Ed., title 31, section 757c), and by regulations prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury pursuant to the
authority of that section, as amended by the Public Debt Act of 1941, 55 Stat. 7, the amounts of savings bonds of the several series
issued during any one calendar year that may be held by any one person at any one time are limited as follows:
(a) Series A, B, C, and D—$10,000 (maturity value) of each series.
(&) Series E—$5,000 (maturity value).
(c) Series F and G—$50,000 (issue price) for the calendar year 1941, and $100,000 (issue price) for each calendar year
thereafter, of either series or of the combined aggregate of both.
The term " p e r s o n " shall mean any legal entity, including but not limited to, an individual, a partnership, a corporation (publie or private), an unincorporated association or a trust estate.
Sec. 315.10. Calcidation of amount.—In computing the amount of savings bonds of any one series issued during any one
calendar year held by any one person at any one time for the purpose of determining whether the amount is in excess of the
authorized limit as set forth in the next preceding section, the following rules shall govern:
(a) The holdings of each person, as defined in the next preceding section, individually and in a fiduciary capacity, shall be computed separately.
(ft) In the case of bonds of Series A, B, C, D and E, the computation shall be based upon maturity values.
bonds of Series F and G, the computation shall be based upon issue prices.

In the case of

(c) There must be taken into account: (1) all bonds originally issued to and registered in the name of that person alone;
(2) all bonds originally issued to and registered in the name of that person as a coowner or reissued to add his name as
coowner under the provisions of Section 315.29 (a), or to designate him as coowner instead of as a beneficiary under
the provisions of Section 315.35 hereof: Provided, however, That with respect to bonds of Series E held in coownership form, the amount thereof may be applied to the holdings of either of the coowners, but will not be applied to both,
or the amount may be apportioned between them; and (3) all bonds acquired by him before March 1, 1941, upon the
death of another or the happening of any other event.
(d) There need not be taken into account: (1) bonds of which that person is merely the designated beneficiary; (2) those in
which his interest is only that of a beneficiary under a trust; or (3) those to which he is entitled as an heir or legatee
of the deceased registered owner, or by virtue of the termination of a trust or the happening of any other event unless
he became entitled to any such bonds in his own right before March 1, 1941.
(e) Nothing herein contained shall be construed to invalidate any holdings within or, except as provided in subsection (c)
above, to validate any holdings in excess of, the authorized limits, as computed under the regulations in force at the
time such holdings were acquired.
Sec. 315.11. Disposition of excess.—If any person at any time acquires savings bonds issued during any one calendar year in
excess of the prescribed amount the excess must be immediately surrendered for refund of the purchase price.
Subpart E—LOST, STOLEN, MUTILATED, DEFACED OR DESTROYED BONDS
Sec. 315.12. Belief in case of loss, etc.—Under the provisions of the Government Losses in Shipment Act, relief either by the
issue of a substitute bond or by payment may be given in case of the loss, theft, destruction, mutilation or defacement of a savings
bond. In any such case immediate notice of the facts, together with a complete description of the bond (including series, year of
issue, serial number and name and address of the registered owner) should be given to the Treasury Department, Division of
Loans and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois. The Department will thereupon furnish an appropriate form and full
instructions for presenting the evidence necessary to secure relief under the law and the regulations as contained in Department
Circular No. 300, as amended. If such bond is subsequently recovered immediate notice of such recovery should be given to the
Division of Loans and Currency (at the address above), in order that delay may be avoided upon a later presentation of the bond
for payment.
Subpart F—SAFEKEEPING FACILITIES
Sec. 315.13. Safekeeping of bonds.—Arrangements may be made for the safekeeping of a savings bond by the Treasury or
by a Federal Reserve Bank as fiscal agent of the United States. Application forms for safekeeping may be secured from postmasters, Federal Reserve Banks or the Treasury Department.
Subpart G—INTEREST
See. 315.14. General.—United States Savings Bonds are issued in two forms: (1) appreciation bonds, issued on a discount
basis and redeemable before maturity at increasing fixed redemption values; and (2) current income bonds, bearing interest
payable semiannually and redeemable before maturity at fixed redemption values less than the face amount of the bond. At
present Series G constitutes the only issue of current income savings bonds.
Sec. 315.15. Appreciation bonds.—No interest as such is paid on savings bonds issued on a discount basis. Such bonds increase
in redemption value at the end of the first year from issue date and at the end of each successive half-year period thereafter until
their maturity, when the full amount becomes payable. The increment in value represents interest and is payable only on redemption of the bonds, whether at or before maturity.
Sec. 315.16. Current income
bond and payable semiannually,
315.18 (c) of Subpart II hereof,
maturity; if bonds are redeemed
Page 24



bonds.—Each such bond bears interest at a specified rate computed on the face amount of the
beginning six months from issue date. Except for redemption at par as provided in Sec.
full advantage of interest at the rate specified may be secured only if the bonds are held to
before maturity at current redemption values the difference between the face or full maturity

"value and the current redemption value then payable in accordance with the table printed on the face of each bond, will represent an adjustment of interest for the rate appropriate for the shorter term, as set forth in the tables attached to the circular
announcing the issue of such bonds.
(а) Method of interest payments.—Interest due on current income bonds will be paid on each interest payment date by
check drawn to the order of the person or persons in whose name the bond is inscribed in the same form as their names
appear in the inscription on the bond, except that in the case of a bond registered in the form " A , " payable on death
to " B , " the check will be drawn to the order of A alone until the Treasury receives notice of A ' s death, from which
date the payment of interest will be suspended until such time as the bond is presented for payment or reissue. Interest
so withheld will be paid to the person entitled to payment of the bond, or in case of reissue to the person in whose name
the bond is reissued. Interest cheeks on bonds registered in the names of coowners will be mailed to the payee first
named at his address of record unless otherwise specifically directed.
( б ) Reissue during interest period.—If a current income bond is reissued for any reason between interest payment dates,
interest for the entire period will be paid, on the next interest payment date, by check drawn to the person in whose
name the bond is reissued. Ordinarily, if a bond is received for reissue less than a month prior to an interest payment
date, reissue cannot be effected until after such interest payment date.
( c ) Change of address.—Prompt notice should be given to the Treasury Department, Division of Loans and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois, of any change of address by the owner of current income bonds. The notice should
refer to all bonds for which it is desired that the address be changed and should describe each bond by date, serial
number, series (including year of issue) and inscription appearing on the face of the bond.
(d) Termination of interest.—In case of redemption prior to maturity of current income bonds interest will cease on the last
day of the interest period next preceding the date of redemption. In case of partial redemption interest on the amount
redeemed will cease on the last day of the interest period next preceding the date of partial redemption, and interest
due thereafter will be paid only on the lower amount remaining after partial redemption.
(e) Consolidation of checks.—Whenever possible a single check will be issued on each payment date for interest on all current income bonds of a single series due to any owner on that date.
(/) Endorsement of checks.—Interest checks must be endorsed in accordance with the requirements of the Treasurer of the
United States, by the payees, either personally or by an attorney in fact, or in case of the death of the payee, by his
executor or administrator. Forms for the appointment of such attorney may be obtained from the Treasurer of the
United States or from any Federal Reserve Bank.
Subpart H—GENERAL PAYMENT AND REDEMPTION PROVISIONS
Sec. 315.17. Payment at maturity.—Pursuant to its terms, a savings bond of any series will be paid at or after maturity at
its full face or maturity value, but only following presentation and surrender of the bond for that purpose with a request for payment properly signed and certified as herein provided.
See. 315.18. Redemption before maturity.—Pursuant to its terms, a savings bond may not be called for redemption by the
Secretary of the Treasury prior to maturity, but may be redeemed in whole or in part at the option of the owner, prior to maturity
under the terms and conditions set forth in the offering circular of each series and in accordance with the provisions of these
regulations, but only following presentation and surrender for that purpose with a request for payment duly signed and certified
as provided herein.
(а) Series A, B, C, D and E.—A bond of Series A, B, C, D or E will be redeemed in whole or in part at any time after 60
days from the issue date without advance notice, at the appropriate redemption value as shown on the face of the bond.
( б ) Series F and G.—A bond of Series F or G will be redeemed, in whole or in part, on one month's notice in writing, on the
first day of any month not less than six months from the issue date, at the appropriate redemption value as shown
on the face of the bond. The owner's option to redeem may be shown by a signed request for payment or by express
written notice, and payment will be made as of the first day of the first month following by at least one full month
the date of receipt of notice by the Treasury Department or a Federal Reserve Bank. For example, if the request or
notice is received on June 15, the effective redemption date will be August 1. If express notice is given, the bond must
be surrendered to the same agency to which the notice is given not less than fifteen days before the effective redemption date. (See Sec. 315.16 (d) for provisions as to interest in case current income bonds are redeemed prior to
maturity.)
(c) Series G—Redemption at par before maturity.—Subject to the provisions of the preceding subsection a bond of Series G
(but not of Series F ) will be redeemed at par before maturity, in whole or in part: (1) upon the death of the owner
or a coowner if a natural person; or (2) if held by a trustee or other fiduciary upon the termination of the trust, in
whole or in part, by reason of the death of any person. If the trust is terminated only in part, redemption at par will
be made to the extent of not more than the pro rata portion of the trust so terminated and only in amounts corresponding to authorized denominations. Proof of death must be furnished and notice of intention to redeem at par before
maturity must be received by the Treasury Department or a Federal Reserve Bank within four months after the date
of death. Payment will ordinarily be made on the first available date: Provided, however, That payment will be postponed until the next interest payment date, upon request of the persons presenting the bond.
See. 315.19. Form and execution of requests for payment.—Requests for payment of savings bonds, unless otherwise authorized in a particular case, must be executed on the form appearing on the back of the bond to be surrendered and unless otherwise
specifically requested payment will be made pursuant to a duly executed request on the earliest day consistent with these regulations.
(а) Date of request.—Ordinarily requests executed more than six months before the date of receipt of a bond by a Federal

sign the request for payment in ink, adding in the space provided the address to which the check issued in payment is
to be mailed. A signature made by mark ( X ) must be witnessed by at least one person in addition to the certifying

other than by marriage the request should be supported by satisfactory proof of such change, unless already on file.
No request signed in behalf of the owner or person entitled to payment by an agent or a person acting under a power
of attorney will be recognized by the Treasury Department except in those eases arising under Subpart E hereof.

the presence of and be certified by a notary or other officer authorized to administer oaths, but his official character
and jurisdiction must be certified by a United States diplomatic or consular officer under seal of his office.

Public Health Service Hospitals, Marine Hospitals, and Federal penal institutions, should use the seal of the particular institution or service, where such seal is available. If a certifying officer, other than a post office official, officer of a bank or trust
company, or officer of an issuing agent, does not possess an official seal, that fact should be made known and attested.
Sec. 315.22. Interested person not to certify.—No person authorized to certify requests for payment may certify a request
for payment of a bond of which he is the owner, or in which he has an interest, either in his own right or in any representative

of the registered owner or other person entitled and mailed to him at the address given in his request for payment.
Sec. 315.24. Partial redemption.—A savings bond of any series in a denomination other than the lowest authorized for that
series may be redeemed in part at current redemption value, but only in amounts corresponding to authorized denominations, upon
presentation and surrender of the bond in accordance with this subpart. In any such ease, before the request for payment is
(maturity value), and
signed there should be added to the first sentence of the request the words " t o the extent of $
reissue of the r e m a i n d e r ' U p o n partial redemption of a savings bond the remainder will be reissued as of the original issue date
as provided in Subpart S hereof. For payment of interest on bonds of Series G in case of partial redemption see Subpart G hereof.
Subpart I—MINORS AND PERSONS UNDER OTHER LEGAL DISABILITY
Sec. 315.25. Payment to legal guardians.—If the form of registration of a savings bond indicates that the owner is a minor
or has been judicially declared to be incompetent to manage his estate and that a guardian or similar representative has been
appointed for the estate of such minor or incompetent by a court having jurisdiction or is otherwise legally qualified, payment will
be made only to such guardian or similar legal representative. In such case the request for payment appearing on the back of the
bond should be signed by the guardian or other legal representative as such, for example, " J o h n A. Jones, guardian (committee) of
the estate of Henry W. Smith, a minor (an incompetent).'' Unless the form of registration gives the name of the representative,
there must be submitted in support of the request a certificate or a certified copy of the letters of appointment from the court
making the appointment under the seal of the court, establishing that the appointment is in full force. Such certificate or certification (except in the case of corporate fiduciaries) should be dated not more than 6 months prior to the date of presentation of
the bond for payment. See Subpart M hereof for payment provisions applicable to bonds registered in the names of guardians
and similar fiduciaries. Where the form of registration does not indicate that the owner is a minor for whose estate a guardian
has been appointed, a notice that such guardian has been appointed will not be accepted by the Treasury for the purpose of preventing payment to the minor or his parent as provided in the two following sections.
Sec. 315.26. Payment to minors.—Unless the form of registration of a savings bond indicates that the owner is a minor for
whose estate a guardian or similar legal representative has been appointed or is otherwise duly qualified, payment will be made
direct to such minor, provided he is, at the time payment is requested, of sufficient competency and understanding to sign his name
to the request and to comprehend the nature of such act. In general the fact that the request for payment has been signed by a
minor and duly certified in accordance with Subpart H hereof will be accepted as sufficient proof of such competency and
understanding.
See. 315.27. Payment to parents of minors.—If the owner of a savings bond is a minor and the form of registration does not
indicate that a guardian or similar legal representative of the estate of such minor owner has been appointed or is otherwise
legally qualified, and if such minor owner is not of sufficient competency and understanding to execute the request for payment,
payment will be made to either parent of the minor with whom he resides, or if the minor does not reside with either parent, then
to the person who furnishes Ms chief support. The parent or such other person should sign the request for payment in his own
name, on behalf of the minor, in the form 1 ' Mrs. Mary Jones, on behalf of John C. Jones,'' and should sign a certificate, in substantially the following form, which may be typed on the back of the bond:
" I certify that I am the
whom he resides. He is
sign this request."

(relationship) of John 0. Jones and the person with
years of age and is not of sufficient competency and understanding to

If a person other than a parent signs the request on behalf of the minor he should also certify that the minor does not reside with
either parent and that he furnishes his chief support. The Treasury Department may in any particular ease require further
proof that the minor is not of sufficient competency and understanding to execute the request for payment and of the right of the
person executing the request to act on behalf of the minor.
Sec. 315.28. Payment to voluntary guardian of person under disability.—In any case where the adult owner of a bond has
been judicially declared incompetent or such incompetency, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury, is otherwise established, and no duly qualified legal representative of his estate is acting, and the entire gross value of his personal estate does not
exceed $500, payment will be made to a member of his family or other person acting as voluntary guardian, upon presentation
of proof satisfactory to the Secretary of the Treasury that the proceeds of the bond are necessary for the purchase of necessaries
for the incompetent or for his wife or minor children or other persons dependent upon him for support. Applications for such
payment should be made only on appropriate forms, which may be obtained from the Treasury Department, Division of Loans
and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois, or any Federal Reserve Bank. The request for payment should not be
executed, nor the bond presented, until the application has been approved and instructions have been given by the Treasury
Department.
Subpart J—SINGLE NAME—ADDITION OF COOWNER, ETC.
Sec. 315.29. Reissue for certain purposes.—A savings bond of any series registered in the name of one person in his own
right, or to which one person is shown to be entitled in his own right under these regulations, may be reissued upon appropriate
request for the following purposes:
(a) Addition of coowner.—Reissue in the name of the owner with that of another natural person as coowner, provided that
bonds reissued in accordance with this subsection will be considered for the purposes of computation of holdings under
Subpart D of these regulations as originally issued in both names and no reissue will be effective which results in any
one person holding bonds in excess of the established limitation for the series to which the bonds belong. Requests for
reissue under this subsection should be made on Form PD 1762.




Page 27

(b) Addition of a beneficiary.—Reissue in the name of the owner with the name of another natural person as designated
beneficiary. Applications for reissue under the provisions of this subsection should be made on Form PD 1077.
(c) Reissue in living trust.—Reissue in the name of a trustee of a living trust created by the registered owner for his benefit
in whole or in part, during his lifetime whether or not containing an absolute power of revocation in the grantor; but
such reissue will be allowed only in the case of bonds of those series which may be originally issued in the name of a
trustee.
See. 315.30. Reissue wpon request of a minor.—Reissues under the provisions of this Subpart will be made upon request of
owners, notwithstanding the fact that they are minors, provided they are of sufficient competency and understanding, and are under
no legal disability other than minority.
Sec. 315.31. Reissue only at Federal Reserve Banks and Treasury.—Reissues in accordance with the provisions of this Subpart may be made only at Federal Reserve Banks or at the Treasury Department. A coowner may be added only by reissue of the
bond. Federal Reserve Banks, however, may, in appropriate cases, add the name of a beneficiary to bonds already outstanding
without reissue, providing such addition is properly certified by the Federal Reserve Bank.
Subpart K—TWO NAMES—COOWNERSHIP FORM
See. 315.32. Payment or reissue.—A savings bond registered in the names of two persons as eoowners in the form " J o h n A.
Jones OR Mrs. Mary C. Jones," will be paid or reissued as follows:
(a) During the lives of both eoowners.—During the lives of both eoowners the bond will be paid to either coowner upon his
separate request without requiring the signature of the other coowner; and upon payment to either coowner the other
person shall cease to have any interest in the bond. The bond will also be paid to both eoowners upon their joint request,
in which case payment will be made by check drawn to the order of both eoowners in the form, for example, ' ' John A.
Jones and Mrs. Mary C. Jones,'' and the check must be endorsed by both payees. The bond will not be reissued in any
form during the lives of both eoowners except as specifically provided in these regulations.
(b) After the death of one coowner.—If either coowner dies without having presented and surrendered the bond for payment
to a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, the surviving coowner will be recognized as the sole and absolute owner of the bond, and payment will be made only to him: Provided, however, That if a coowner dies after he has
properly executed the request for payment and after the bond has actually been received by a Federal Reserve Bank
or the Treasury Department, payment of the bond, or check if one has been issued, will be made to his estate (see Subpart P hereof). Upon proof of the death of one coowner and appropriate request by the surviving coowner (unless a
nonresident alien, in which case see Section 315.3) the bond will be reissued in the name of such survivor alone, or in
his name with another individual as coowner, or in his name payable on death to a designated beneficiary.
(c) On death of both eoowners in common disaster.—If both eoowners die in a common disaster under such conditions that it
cannot be established, either by presumption of law or otherwise, which coowner died first, the bond will be considered
as belonging to the estates of both eoowners.
(d) After the death of a surviving coowner.—If a surviving coowner who became solely entitled to the bond under the provisions of subsection (b) of this section dies without having submitted the bond for payment or reissue, the bond will be
paid or reissued as though it were registered in the name of such last deceased coowner alone. In this case proof of the
death of both eoowners and of the order in which they died will be required.
Sec. 315.33. Place of reissue.—Reissues authorized in this Subpart will be made in accordance with the provisions of Subpart S hereof, but only at a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, and applications for such reissues should be
made on forms provided for that purpose.
Subpart L—TWO NAMES—BENEFICIARY FORM
Sec. 315.34. Payment to registered owner.—A bond registered in the name of one person payable on death to another, for
example, " H e n r y W. Ash, payable on death to John C. B l a c k " , will be paid to the registered owner during his lifetime upon his
properly executed request as though no beneficiary had been named in the registration.
Sec. 315.35. Reissue during the lifetime of a registered owner.—A bond registered in the name of one person payable on death
to another may be reissued, on the duly certified request of the registered owner, to name a beneficiary designated on the bond as
coowner subject to the same restrictions and conditions contained in Section 315.29 (a). A bond may also be reissued upon the
duly certified request of the registered owner, together with the duly certified consent of the designated beneficiary, to eliminate
such beneficiary or to substitute another person as beneficiary, or to name another person as coowner. If the beneficiary should
predecease the registered owner, upon proof of such death and upon request of the registered owner the bond many be reissued in his
name alone or in his name with another individual as coowner, or in his name payable on death to a designated beneficiary.
Requests should preferably be made upon the forms provided for such purpose.
Sec. 315.36. Payment or reissue to beneficiary.—If the registered owner dies without having presented and surrendered the
bond for payment or authorized reissue to a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, and is survived by the beneficiary,
upon proof of such death and survivorship, the beneficiary will be recognized as the sole and absolute owner of the bond, and it will
be paid only to him at or before maturity, or (unless such beneficiary be a nonresident alien, in which case see Section 315.3) may
be reissued in his name alone, or otherwise reissued in accordance with Subpart J as though it were registered in his name alone:
Provided, however, That if the bond with a properly executed request by the registered owner for payment or authorized reissue has
actually been received by a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, payment of the bond, or check, if one has been
issued, will be made to the estate of the deceased owner in accordance with Section 315.49.
Sec. 315.37. Payment or reissue after death of the surviving beneficiary.—After the death of a surviving beneficiary who
became entitled under the provisions of this Subpart, the bond will be paid or (except in the case of a nonresident alien) reissued
in accordance with Subpart J as though it were registered in the name of the surviving beneficiary alone. In this case proof of
the death of both the registered owner and the beneficiary and of the order in which they died will be required.

that purpose.
Subpart M—FIDUCIARIES
Sec. 315.39. Payment to fiduciaries.—A savings bond registered in the name of, or otherwise belonging to, a fiduciary estate,
will be paid to the fiduciaries of such estate upon their request. The request for payment must be signed by all acting fiduciaries,
except for payment at maturity, when a request by any one or more acting fiduciaries will be accepted, but payment will be made
to all. If the bond is registered in the names of individual fiduciaries of the estate who are still acting, no further evidence of
authority will be required. In other cases the request for payment must be supported by evidence as specified below:
(а) Fiduciaries—By title only.—If the bond is registered in the titles without the names of the fiduciaries, satisfactory proof
of the incumbency of the fiduciaries must be furnished, except in the case of publie officers.
( б ) Succeeding fiduciaries.—If the fiduciaries in whose names the bonds were registered have been succeeded by other fiduciaries, satisfactory proof of successorship must be furnished.
( c ) Boards, committees, etc., as fiduciaries.—If the fiduciaries consist of a board, committee, commission, or public body, or
are otherwise empowered to act as a unit, a request for payment before maturity must be supported by a duly certified
copy of a resolution of the board or other body authorizing such action, except that in the case of a public board or
commission a request signed in its name by a duly authorized officer thereof will ordinarily be accepted without further
proof of the officer's authority. In any case the request must be signed in the name of the board or other body by an
authorized officer or agent thereof.
(d) Corporate fiduciaries.—If a publie or private corporation or a political body, such as a State or county, is acting as a
fiduciary, a request for payment must be signed in the name of the corporation or other body, in the fiduciary capacity
in which it is acting, by an authorized officer thereof.
(e) Registration not disclosing trust.—If the form in which the bond is registered does not show that it belongs to a fiduciary estate or does not identify the estate to which it belongs, satisfactory proof of ownership must be furnished.
Sec. 315.40. Reissue in the name of a succeeding fiduciary.—If a person in whose name a savings bond is registered as a fiduciary has been succeeded as such fiduciary by another person, the bond will be reissued in the name of the succeeding fiduciary
upon appropriate request and satisfactory proof of successorship.
Sec. 315.41. Reissue in the name of, or payment to, the person entitled.—
(a) Distribution of trust estate in Tcind.—A savings bond to which a beneficiary of a trust has become lawfully entitled, in
whole or in part, under the terms of the trust, will be reissued in his name to the extent of his interest, as a distribution in kind, upon the request of the trustee or trustees and their certification that such person is entitled and has
agreed to reissue in his name: Provided, That if a trustee himself is so entitled in his own right, his request for reissue
in his name must be supported by an order of court or other satisfactory proof that he is so entitled, unless a cofiduciary joins in the request: Provided further, That if the form in which the bond is registered does not show that it
belongs to a trust estate, the request for reissue must be supported by satisfactory proof of ownership.
(&) After termination of trust estate.—If the person who would be lawfully entitled to a savings bond upon the termination
of a trust does not desire to have such distribution to him in kind, as provided in the next preceding subsection, the
trustee or trustees should redeem the bond in accordance with the provisions of Sec. 315.39 hereof before the estate
is terminated. If, however, the estate is terminated without such payment or reissue having been made, the bond will
thereafter be paid to or reissued in the name of the person lawfully entitled upon his request and satisfactory proof of
ownership, supplemented, if there are two or more persons having any apparent interest in the bond, by an agreement
executed by all such persons.
(c) Upon termination of guardianship estate.—A savings bond registered in the name of a guardian or similar legal representative of the estate of a minor or incompetent, if the estate is terminated during the ward's lifetime, will be reissued
in the name of the former ward upon the representative's request and certification that the former ward is entitled and
has agreed to reissue in his name, or will be paid to or reissued in the name of the former ward upon his own request,
supported in either case by satisfactory proof that his disability has been removed. Certification by the representative that a former minor has attained his majority, or that the legal disability of a female ward has been removed by
marriage, if the State law so provides, will ordinarily be accepted as sufficient, but if the disability is removed by court
order a duly certified copy of the order will be necessary. Upon the death of the ward a bond registered in the name
of his guardian or similar representative will be reissued in accordance with the provisions of Subpart P as though it
were registered in the name of the ward alone.
Sec. 315.42. Bonds held by trustee where reissue not authorized.—Savings bonds which by their terms or under the regulations in force at the time of their issue may not be registered in the name of a fiduciary may be held without change of registration
by a trustee or other fiduciary under the will of a deceased owner of the bonds, but will not be reissued in the name of the fiduciary. Upon proof of the appointment and authority of the fiduciary bonds so held will be paid to the fiduciary, or upon termination
of the trust will be reissued in the names of the persons entitled in their own right in accordance with the provisions of this

officer's authority.

for payment signed by a general partner. The signature to the request should be in the form ( ' Smith and Jones, a partnership, by

that the person signing the request is duly authorized.
Sec. 315.45. Reissue or payment to successors of corporations, unincorporated associations or partnerships.—A savings bond
registered in the name of a private corporation, an unincorporated association or partnership, which has been succeeded by another corporation, unincorporated association or partnership as the result of merger, consolidation, reincorporation, conversion,
reorganization, or otherwise by operation of law or in any manner whereby the ownership of the succeeding organization is substantially identical with that of its predecessor, will be paid to, or reissued in the name of, the succeeding corporation, unincorporated association or partnership upon appropriate request on its behalf supported by satisfactory proof of lawful successorship.
Sec. 315.46. Reissue or payment on dissolution.—
(a) Corporations.—A savings bond registered in the name of a private corporation which is in process of dissolution will be
paid to the authorized representative of the corporation upon a duly executed request for payment supported by satisfactory evidence of the representative's authority. Upon the termination of dissolution proceedings such bonds may
be reissued in the names of those persons, other than the creditors, entitled to the assets of the corporation to the
extent of their respective interests upon the duly executed request of the authorized representative of the corporation

of a partner, or in any other manner, will be paid to or reissued in the names of the persons entitled thereto as the
result of such dissolution to the extent of their respective interests, upon their request supported by satisfactory evidence of their title, including proof that the debts of the partnership have been paid or properly provided for.
Subpart 0—STATES, PUBLIC CORPORATIONS, AND PUBLIC BOARDS, COMMISSIONS AND OFFICERS
Sec. 315.47. In names of States, public corporations and public boards.—A savings bond registered in the name of a State
or of a county, city, town, village or other public corporation, or in the name of a public board or commission, will be paid upon a

signing is the incumbent of the designated office.
Subpart P—DECEASED OWNERS
Sec. 315.49. Payment or reissue on death of owner.—Upon the death of the owner of a savings bond, who was not survived by
a coowner or designated beneficiary and who had not during his lifetime presented and surrendered the bond to a Federal Reserve
Bank or the Treasury Department with a duly executed and proper request for an authorized reissue, the bond will be paid or
reissued as hereinafter provided. The provisions of this section shall also apply to savings bonds registered in the names of
executors or administrators except that proof of their appointment and qualification may not be required. Established forms
for use in such eases and for requests for payment or reissue may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or from the Treasury Department, Division of Loans and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois, and should be used in every instance.

the bond will be paid to the duly qualified representative of the estate or will be reissued in the names of the persons
entitled to share in the estate upon the request of the duly appointed and qualified representative of the estate, who
should certify that the persons named are entitled to the extent specified for each and have consented to such reissue.
The request for payment or reissue should be signed in the form, for example, " J o h n A. Jones, administrator of the
estate (or executor of the will) of Henry W. Jones, deceased". Reissue will be made to the persons entitled in their
names alone, or with a coowner (provided no excess holdings will be created) or beneficiary upon appropriate request
by such persons. A request for payment or reissue must be supported by proof of the representative's authority. Such
proof may consist of a court certificate or a certified copy of the representative's letters of appointment issued by the
court having jurisdiction; the certificate, or the certification to the letters, must be under the seal of the court, must
contain a statement that the appointment is in full force, and should be dated within six months of the date of presentation of the bond for payment or reissue. If the representative is himself the person entitled and desires Teissue in
his own name, the request for reissue must be supported by an order of court, unless a coadministrator or coexecutor
joins in the request.
(&) After settlement through court proceedings.—If the estate of the decedent has been settled in a court of competent jurisdiction, the bond will be paid to, or reissued in the name of, the persons entitled thereto as determined by the court:

(c)

V

Without administration.—If no legal representative of the decedent's estate has been or is to be appointed, and if it is
established to the satisfaction of the Secretary of the Treasury either that the gross value of the personal estate does
not exceed $500, or that administration of the estate is not required in the State of the decedent's last domicile, the bond
will be paid to, or reissued in the name of, the persons entitled to share in the estate, without requiring administration,
pursuant to an agreement and request by them on the form prescribed by the Treasury Department and supported by
the evidence called for by that form: Provided, however, That reissue will not be made in the name of a creditor of
the estate. No payment or reissue will be permitted without administration if any of the persons entitled are minors
or incompetents, except to them or in their names, in whole or to the extent of their interests in the decedent's entire

personal estate, or upon compliance with the provisions of Subpart I hereof governing payment of savings bonds registered in the names of such persons.
Sec. 315.50 Forms of registration on reissue.—In no case will bonds be reissued hereunder except in a form authorized upon
original issue by the regulations in force at the time bonds surrendered were issued.
Subpart Q—CREDITORS' RIGHTS AND JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS
Sec. 315.51. Creditors' rights.—A creditor of the owner of a savings bond may secure payment thereof to the extent of the
owner's interest, or to the extent of the creditor's claim, whichever is smaller, through valid judicial proceedings: Provided, however, That no such proceedings will be recognized if they would give effect to an attempted voluntary transfer inter vivos of the
bond or would defeat or impair the rights of survivorship conferred by these regulations upon coowners and beneficiaries. Payment, or partial payment in an amount not in excess of that to which the creditor is entitled, will be made upon presentation and
surrender of the bond with the request for payment duly executed, at the redemption value current 30 days after the proceedings
have become final, or current at the time the bond is presented for payment, whichever is earlier. No reissue of the bond will be
made to the creditor under the provisions of this section.
Sec. 315.52. Determination of interest as between owner and coowner or beneficiary.—Conflicting claims as to ownership of
or interest in a savings bond, as between the registered owner and the coowner or the registered owner and a designated beneficiary
may be determined by valid judicial proceedings, in which case the bond upon surrender by the party requesting reissue may be
reissued in the names of the respective parties to the extent of their respective interests as determined by such proceedings, but
only in authorized denominations. The Treasury can accept no notices of pending judicial proceedings and cannot undertake to
protect the interests of litigants who do not have possession of the bonds.
Sec. 315.53. Evidence necessary.—To establish the validity of judicial proceedings there must be submitted a certified copy
of the judgment or decree of court and of any necessary supplementary proceedings, as well as a certificate from the clerk of the
court under the court seal, showing that the judgment or decree is in full force and effect and has become final under the laws of
the jurisdiction. The Secretary of the Treasury may in any case require such further information, documents and security as
he may deem necessary.
Sec. 315.54. Bankruptcy and insolvency.—Payment (but not reissue) of a savings bond will be made to a duly qualified trustee
in bankruptcy or receiver of the estate of the registered owner, adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent, upon request for payment duly
executed by such trustee or receiver and supported by satisfactory proof of his appointment and qualifications.
Subpart R—PLEDGE WITH SECRETARY OF TREASURY OR FEDERAL RESERVE BANKS
See. 315.55. Deposit under Department Circulars No. 154 and No. 657.—Notwithstanding any other provisions of this or any
other circular, a savings bond may be pledged by the registered owner in lieu of surety under the provisions of Department Circular No. 154, amended: Provided, That the bond approving officer is the Secretary of the Treasury. In such cases an irrevocable power of attorney shall be executed authorizing the Secretary to request payment, and payment of the bond will, if it becomes
necessary, be made upon such request at the then appropriate redemption value. No pledge to a bond approving officer other
than the Secretary of the Treasury will be permitted. A savings bond may also be deposited as security with a Federal Reserve
Bank under the provisions of Department Circular No. 657 by an institution certified under that circular as an issuing agent for
savings bonds of Series E. In no other cases are savings bonds suitable for use as collateral, nor will a power of attorney to
request payment be recognized in any other case.
Subpart S—REISSUE AND DENOMINATIONAL EXCHANGE
Sec. 315.56. General.—Reissue of savings bonds in different names or in a different form of registration will be made only
in the following instances and only in denominations and forms of registration authorized for the bonds surrendered:
(а) To correct an error in the original issue, upon request of the owner or coowner, supported by satisfactory proof of such
error unless the error was made by the issuing agent;
( б ) To show a change in the name of an owner, coowner, or
the change if for any other reason than marriage;

beneficiary upon his request, supported by satisfactory proof of

(c) As otherwise specifically provided in these regulations.
Sec. 315.57. Requests for reissue.—Requests for reissue should be signed by the person authorized under these regulations to
make such requests, on appropriate forms which may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or from the Treasury Department, Division of Loans and Currency. If the request is by reason of a change of name the signature should show both names,
and the manner in which the change took place. A request for reissue must be signed in the presence of and be certified by an
officer authorized under Subpart H hereof to certify requests for payment. A request may not be signed by a person under any
legal disability other than minority. It may be signed by a minor who is of sufficient competency and understanding to sign his
name to the request and to comprehend the nature of such act. In general the fact that a request for reissue has been signed by
a minor and duly certified will be accepted as sufficient proof of such competency and understanding.
Sec. 315.58. Agencies authorized to make reissue.—Reissues under (6) and (c) hereof may be made only at a Federal Reserve
Bank or the Treasury Department.
Sec. 315.59. Date of bonds on reissue.—The new bonds will be of the same series, will bear the same issue date, and will
have the same rights and privileges as the bonds surrendered.




Page 31

Sec. 315.60. Effective date.—In any case of authorized reissue the Treasury Department reserves the right to treat the receipt by a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department of a bond and appropriate request for reissue thereof as determining the date upon which reissue is effective.

III.

PURCHASE

OF

NOTES

1. Applications and payment.—Applications will be received by the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches,

generally may submit applications for account of customers, but only the Federal Reserve Banks and the
Treasury Department are authorized to act as official agencies. Every application must be accompanied
by payment in full, at par. Any form of exchange, including personal checks, will be accepted subject to
collection, and should be drawn to the order of the Federal Reserve Bank or of the Treasurer of the United
States, as payee, as the case may be. The date funds are made available on collection of exchange will
govern the issue date of the notes. Any depositary, qualified pursuant to the provisions of Treasury
Department Circular No. 92 (revised February 23, 1932, as supplemented) will be permitted to make payment by credit for notes applied for on behalf of itself or its customers up to any amount for which it shall
be qualified in excess of existing deposits.
2. Reservations.—The Secretary of the Treasury reserves the right to reject any application in whole
or in part, and to refuse to issue or permit to be issued hereunder any notes in any case or in any class or
classes of cases if he deems such action to be in the public interest, and his action in any such respect shall be

Secretary of the Treasury, in his discretion, may designate agencies other than those herein provided for
the sale of, or for the handling of applications for, Treasury notes to be issued hereunder.

should be inscribed individually—the notes will not be issued in the names of two or more persons jointly.
The application should be accompanied by remittance to cover the purchase price—that is, par. The use
of an official application form is desirable, but not necessary. Appropriate forms may be obtained on

D. C.; banking institutions and security dealers generally will be supplied with forms for the use of their
customers.

ANNOUNCEMENT B Y THE SECRETARY OF T H E TREASURY
regarding the
THIRD WAR LOAN
and
REFUNDING OF 3 % % TREASURY BONDS OF 1943-45

Released for publication August 16, 1943
Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau today released the official circulars containing the
detailed terms and conditions of the 2l/2% and 2% bonds, and the % % certificates of indebtedness, which will be sold during- the Third War Loan Drive beginning September 9.
These securities, as well as Series E W a r Savings Bonds, Series F and G United States
Savings Bonds and Series C Treasury Savings Notes, will be available during the entire period of
the Drive for subscription by individuals, insurance companies, savings banks, savings and loan
associations and all other classes of subscribers except commercial banks, which are defined for
this purpose as banks accepting demand deposits, which will not be permitted to subscribe for their
own account.
On July 22, the Secretary announced that the securities to be sold during the Third War Loan
Drive would be sold entirely to nonbanking investors. In keeping with this objective, the official
circulars governing the 2% bonds and the certificates of indebtedness contain an express request
that commercial banks not purchase and that subscribers not trade in these securities until ten days
after the close of the Drive, or until after the books close on an offering of the same or similar
securities for the exclusive subscription of commercial banks for their own account shortly after
the conclusion of the Drive, whichever is earlier. The circular offering the 2y2°/o bonds contains
a provision that these bonds may not be held by commercial banks before September 15, 1953.
Secretary Morgenthau pointed out that because life insurance companies receive substantial
funds at a steady and predictable rate, arrangements have been made so that such companies may
subscribe during the Drive to the 2 l / 2 % and 2°/o bonds in anticipation of funds which will be
available to them for investment up to November 1, and defer payments accordingly. Provisions
to carry out such arrangements are included in the official circulars. These arrangements are
limited to companies whose principal business is the writing of life insurance. Bonds allotted to
such companies may be paid for, in whole or in part, at par and accrued interest, at any time or
times not later than November 1, 1943.
The Secretary again emphasized the importance of having subscriptions entered and paid for
through the banking institutions where the funds of the subscribers are located, in order to avoid
unnecessary movement of banking funds between various sections of the country.
The Secretary further announced that holders of the 3^4% Treasury Bonds of 1943-45, which
have been called for redemption on October 15, will be given an opportunity to exchange their called
bonds for other securities shortly after the close of the Third War Loan Drive. Holders other
than commercial banks will be given the option of exchanging for either the 2% or the 2y2°/o bonds
which are to be sold during the Drive, in authorized denominations. Commercial banks will be
permitted to exchange their holdings for the new 2% bonds. In all cases exchanges will be made
par for par with interest adjustments as of October 15.

OF m i YORK

(Copy of letter sent to
22 life insurance companies in Second Federal
Reserve District)

August 27, 1943.

Gentlemen:
In connection with the Third War Loan Drive which will open on
Septanber 9, 1943, we enclose a copy of our printed letter dated August 26,
1943, addressed to interested persons other than banking institutions in the
Second Federal Reserve District, with respect to offerings of 2 l/2 Percent
Treasury Bonds of 1964-69, 2 Percent Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 and 7/8
Percent Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series E-1944*
Section IV of Treasury Department Circulars Nos# 719 and 720 regarding the 2 1/2 Percent Treasury Bonds of 1964-69 and/the 2^Percent Treasury
Bonds of 1951-53, respectively, which appears on pages 3 and K> of the enclosure herewith, provides that any such bonds that may be allotted to life
insurance companies, may be paid for, in whole or in part, at par and accrued
interest, at any time or times not later than November 1, 1943* If you decide
to take advantage of the deferred payment privilege, please follow the instructions outlined in this letter*
If you desire to make any payment for 2 1/2 Percent Treasury Bonds of
1964-69 or 2 Percent Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 while the books are open during
the Third War Loan Drive, a separate subscription for an amount of bonds equal
to such payment should be filed in the usual manner accompanied by full payment therefor at par and accrued interest, if any. A separate subscription
should be filed for any bonds to be paid for after the books have closed. No
payment should be made in respect of such a subscription at the time it is
filed, but payment must be made not later than November 1, 1943* A single subscription to be paid for in part while the books are open and in part after the
books have closed, should not be submitted*
Any subscription for bonds for which you desire to make deferred payment should be submitted by you on our regular subscription form viiich should
be modified by striking out the sections entitled "Classification of subscriptions for computation of interest accrual" and "Payment in full for such
securities is made as indicated below"• The subscription form so modified
should be accompanied in each case by a letter from you signed by a duly
authorized officer containing your agreement to pay for the bonds in accordance
with the provisions of the appropriate Treasury Department Circular, A form of




2

8/27/43

letter which ?.lll be acceptable to us in this connection is enclosed.
The subscription form and letter may be forwarded through a banking
institution or sent directly to us. The Treasury has emphasized the importance
of having subscriptions paid for through the banking institutions where the
funds of subscribers are located in order to permit such institutions to make
full use of their V»ar Loan Deposit Accounts; accordingly, you should arrange
to have deferred payments made for your account by the banking institution or
institutions in which the funds are deposited. You should advise each institution making payment for your account that each payment should be clearly
identified with your subscription, and that if such payment is to be made by
the banking institution by credit to the War Loan Deposit Account, the institution should furnish us with a letter advising us of the date and amount of such
credit.
Each payment on account of your subscription should include accrued
interest on the principal amount covered by the payment to the date on which
the payment is received by us. If payment is made in more than one instalment,
you will have the option (a) of taking delivery, in the normal course following
each instalment payment, of bonds of a par amount equal to the principal amount
covered by such payment, or (b) of taking our receipt for the amount of each
instalment payment and deferring delivery of the bonds until the final payment
is made. Your letter to us accompanying your subscription should indicate
which ox these alternatives you have sleeted.

submitted directly to 11s. However, in order to avoid transfers of funds and to minimize the
amount of accrued interest payable, purchasers are urged to submit their subscriptions through
the banking institutions in which the funds to be used in payment f o r such subscriptions are
on deposit, rather than to forward the subscriptions directly to us.
Subscriptions to any of such issues f o r account of customers may be submitted to us by
banking institutions only. Accordingly, security dealers, brokers, savings and loan associations
and others should enter subscriptions f o r account of customers through banking institutions.
Subscriptions should be submitted only on the appropriate forms provided by us, as f o l l o w s :

Subscriptions must be accompanied by payment in full at par and accrued interest, if any.
However, since life insurance companies receive substantial funds at a steady and predictable
rate, the Treasury has provided that companies whose principal business is the writing of life
insurance may make payment, at par and accrued interest, not later than November 1,1943, for
2 % Percent Treasury Bonds of 1964-69 and 2 Percent Treasury Bonds of 1951-53 subscribed
for by them during the drive. Instructions with respect to the submission of subscriptions by
life insurance companies which elect to make deferred payment will be furnished to each life
insurance company having its principal office in the Second Federal Reserve District.
Computation of accrued interest
Each such issue will be dated September 15, 1943, and will be sold at par plus accrued
interest from September 15 to the date payment is received by us, except that accrued interest is

ANNOUNCEMENT B Y T H E S E C R E T A R Y OF T H E T R E A S U R Y
regarding the
THIRD W A R LOAN

Released for publication July 22, 1943
Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., announced today that the goal set for the
Third War Loan Drive, starting September 9, will be $15 billion.
Mr. Morgenthau said that the entire $15 billion will be sold to individual investors, corporations, insurance companies and other non-banking sources.
"This goal and the Third War Loan program," he said, "was determined by Treasury officials
after receiving recommendations from chairmen of the State War Finance Committees, and officials
of the Federal Reserve System and the American Bankers Association. Getting this amount of
money will be a huge task, and will represent the largest financing program in the history of
the world.
"The job of raising this $15 billion," he said, "will be handled by War Finance Committees
of each state, and the bonds will be sold largely by hundreds of thousands of patriotic volunteer
salesmen, who already have made plans to concentrate on house-to-house selling, since a major
consideration is increasing the number of people who are buying War Bonds."
The securities to be offered in the Third War Loan, it was pointed out, will be essentially the
same types as those sold in the Second War Loan.
The securities to be sold under the direction of the War Finance Committees will consist of:
1.
2.
3.

Series E Savings Bonds
Series F and G Savings Bonds
Series C Savings Notes

4.

2y 2 % Bonds of 1964-69

5.
6.

2% Bonds of 1951-53
y%°/o Certificates of Indebtedness

The 2 B o n d will be dated September 15, 1943, due December 15, 1969, callable December
15, 1964, and will be issued in coupon or registered form at the option of the buyers in denominations from $500 to $1,000,000. Commercial banks, which are defined for this purpose as banks
accepting demand deposits, will not be permitted to own these Bonds until September 15, 1953.
The 2% Bond will be dated September 15, 1943, due September 15, 1953, callable September
15, 1951, and will be issued in coupon or registered form at the option of the buyers in denominations from $500 to $1,000,000.
The y%°/o Certificates of Indebtedness will be dated September 15, 1943, due September 1, 1944,
and will be issued in denominations of $1,000 to $1,000,000, and in coupon form only.
None of these securities will be available for subscription by commercial banks for their own
account during the period of the Drive. However, shortly after the Drive terminates, a 2 per cent
Bond and a % per cent Certificate of Indebtedness will be offered for subscription by commercial
banks for their own account. In order to confine all sales in the Drive to non-banking sources,
the Treasury will request commerical banks not to buy in the market, and will request the market
not to trade in, either of these securities offered in the Drive until the books for bank subscriptions are closed.
To avoid unnecessary transfers of funds from one locality to another, the Treasury would prefer
to have all subscriptions by corporations and firms entered and paid for through the banking institutions where the funds are located.

ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY
regarding the
THIRD WAR LOAN
and

REFUNDING OF 3%% TREASURY BONDS OF 1943-45

Released for publication August 16, 1943
Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau today released the official circulars containing the
detailed terms and conditions of the 2 a n d 2% bonds, and the % % certificates of indebtedness, which will be sold during the Third War Loan Drive beginning September 9.
These securities, as well as Series E War Savings Bonds, Series F and G United States
Savings Bonds and Series C Treasury Savings Notes, will be available during the entire period of
the Drive for subscription by individuals, insurance companies, savings banks, savings and loan
associations and all other classes of subscribers except commercial banks, which are defined for
this purpose as banks accepting demand deposits, which will not be permitted to subscribe for their
own account.
On July 22, the Secretary announced that the securities to be sold during the Third War Loan
Drive would be sold entirely to nonbanking investors. In keeping with this objective, the official
circulars governing the 2% bonds and the certificates of indebtedness contain an express request
that commercial banks not purchase and that subscribers not trade in these securities until ten days
after the close of the Drive, or until after the books close on an offering of the same or similar
securities for the exclusive subscription of commercial banks for their own account shortly after
the conclusion of the Drive, whichever is earlier. The circular offering the 2 ^ % bonds contains
a provision that these bonds may not be held by commercial banks before September 15, 1953.
Secretary Morgenthau pointed out that because life insurance companies receive substantial
funds at a steady and predictable rate, arrangements have been made so that such companies may
subscribe during the Drive to the 2 1 / 2 % and 2% bonds in anticipation of funds which will be
available to them for investment up to November 1, and defer payments accordingly. Provisions
to carry out such arrangements are included in the official circulars. These arrangements are
limited to companies whose principal business is the writing of life insurance. Bonds allotted to
such companies may be paid for, in whole or in part, at par and accrued interest, at any time or
times not later than November 1, 1943.
The Secretary again emphasized the importance of having subscriptions entered and paid for
through the banking institutions where the funds of the subscribers are located, in order to avoid
unnecessary movement of banking funds between various sections of the country.
The Secretary further announced that holders of the
Treasury Bonds of 1943-45, which
have been called for redemption on October 15, will be given an opportunity to exchange their called
bonds for other securities shortly after the close of the Third War Loan Drive. Holders other
than commercial banks will be given the option of exchanging for either the 2°/o or the 2l/2% bonds
which are to be sold during the Drive, in authorized denominations. Commercial banks will be
permitted to exchange their holdings for the new 2% bonds. In all cases exchanges will be made
par for par with interest adjustments as of October 15.

II. D E S C R I P T I O N OF B O N D S

1. The bonds will be dated September 15, 1943, and will bear interest from that date at the rate

December 15, 1964, in whole or in part, at par and accrued interest, on any interest day or days, on 4
months' notice of redemption given in such manner as the Secretary of the Treasury shall prescribe.
In case of partial redemption the bonds to be redeemed will be determined by such method as may be
prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. From the date of redemption designated in any such
notice, interest on the bonds called for redemption shall cease.
2. The income derived from the bonds shall be subject to all Federal taxes, now or hereafter
imposed. The bonds shall be subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or
interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the United States, or by any local taxing
authority.
3. The bonds will not be acceptable to secure deposits of public moneys before September 15,
1953. They will not be entitled to any privilege of conversion.
4. Bearer bonds with interest coupons attached, and bonds registered as to principal and interest, will be issued in denominations of $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $100,000 and $1,000,000.

However, the bonds may be pledged as collateral for loans, including loans by commercial banks, but

to be paid at maturity will be required to dispose of them in the same manner as they dispose of
other assets not eligible to be owned by banks.

(b) that the Secretary of the Treasury be authorized to apply the entire proceeds of redemption to the payment of Federal estate taxes.

days in the half year. For a fractional part of any half year, computation is on the basis of the actual number of
days in such half year.

effect. Upon payment of the bonds appropriate memorandum receipt will be forwarded to the representatives, which will be followed in due course by formal receipt from the Collector of Internal
Revenue.

INSTRUCTIONS

Complete information and permissible forms of registration will be
found in Treasury Department Circular No. 530, Fifth Revision.
Strict compliance with the terms of the circular will avoid delay in
issuing bonds.
For the general guidance of issuing agents accepting orders, United
States War Savings Bonds of Series F may be registered as follows:
(1) In the names of natural persons (that is, individuals), in their own right, as
follows:
(a) In the name of one person;
(b) In the names of two (but not more than two) persons in the alternative as
coowners; or
(c) In the name of one person payable on death to one (but not more than one)
designated person.
(2) In the name of a private corporation followed by the words "a corporation", for
example: "Smith Manufacturing Co., a corporation." Bonds may not be registered in the name of a bank or trust company which accepts demand deposits
except when held by such bank or trust company in fiduciary capacity.
(3) In the name of an unincorporated association or other body followed by the
words "an unincorporated association," for example: "The Lotus Club, an unincorporated association." The term "an unincorporated association" should not
be used to describe a trust fund, a partnership or a business conducted under
a trade name.
(4) In the name of a partnership, considered as an entity, followed by the words
"a partnership", for example: "Smith Brown & Co., a partnership."
(5) In the name of one or more executors, administrators, guardians, committees,
conservators or other representatives of a single estate appointed by a court of
competent jurisdiction or otherwise legally qualified, all of whose names must
be included in the registration, followed by adequate identifying reference to
the estate, for example:
"John Smith, executor of the will (or administrator of the estate) of Henry
J. Smith, deceased", or "William C. Jones, guardian (or committee, etc.)
of the estate of James D. Brown, a minor (or an incompetent)".
A father or mother, as such, or as natural guardian, is not considered a
fiduciary for the purposes of registration.

Registration is restricted to residents of the Continental United States,
the Territories and Insular Possessions of the United States, the Canal Zone,
the Philippine Islands, or citizens of the United States temporarily residing
abroad.
The full name of the owner and that of the coowner or beneficiary, if
any, should be used and should be the name by which the person is ordinarily
known and under which he does business; if there are two given names the
initial of one may be used, or if a person is habitually known and does
business by initial only of his given names, registration may be in such form.
In the case of women, the name must be preceded by "Miss" or "Mrs." and
a married woman's own given name should be used, not that of her husband,
for example, "Mrs. Mary A. Jones", not "Mrs. Frank B. Jones".
CAUTION:

Ownership m War Savings Bonds of Series F, either alone or in

combination
 with those of Series G, is limited to $100,000 (cost price) originally
issued in any one calendar year.
