FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF NEW YORK Fiscal Agent of the United States f Circular No. 2 8 3 9 1 L September 15, 1944 J UNITED STATES WAR SAVINGS BONDS OF SERIES E Use of Certain Commemorative Notations To all Issuing Agents in the Second Federal Reserve District Qualified for Sale of Series E War Savings Bonds: The State War Finance Committees are about to formulate a program to stimulate sales of Series E War Savings Bonds during the period immediately following the surrender of Germany. In connection with this program, it is anticipated that State or local War Finance Committees may prescribe forms of commemorative notations to be placed on the margin of Series E Bonds. The Treasury Department has advised us that it approves of the use of any commemorative notation which may be prescribed by a State or local War Finance Committee. Such a notation may be affixed by the issuing agent in any manner except by sticker or other attachment. The notation should not interfere with the text, inscription, issue date or other material part of the bond, and the issuing agent's dating stamp should indicate the date on which the bond is actually issued. ALLAN SPROUL, President.
