UNITED STATES WAR SAVINGS BONDS, SERIES E
Amendment to Instructions to Issuing Agents

To All Issuing Agents in the Second Federal
Reserve District Qualified for Sale of
United States War Savings Bonds, Series E:

Our Circular No. 2790, dated April 21, 1944, containing revised instructions to
issuing agents qualified for sale of United States Savings Bonds, Series E, includes
on page 7 a section relating to reimbursement for postage and registry fees expended
by issuing agents. This section provides, in part, that in the case of certain packages
sent as insured mail to be treated as registered mail, postage should be paid at the
fourth-class (parcel post) rate in addition to an insurance fee of 30 cents on each
shipping unit.
As the result of the amendment of certain provisions of the Revenue Act of 1943,
domestic insurance fees on insured mail treated as registered mail have been reduced
as of November 1, 1944. Accordingly, the insurance fee to be paid hereafter on
packages mailed in accordance with the instructions referred to above will be 15 cents
on each shipping unit instead of 30 cents.
