(ova) A T T E N T I O N DATING OF UNITED STATES SAVINGS BONDS Past experience prompts us to bring to your attention the importance of changing the year date in your office dating stamp from 1945 to 1946, at the turn of the year. Extreme care should also be taken in inscribing the issue date on the bonds issued on or after January 1, 1946. Your precaution in these respects will avoi d to a great extent the necessity of recalling a large number of bonds for reissue because of incorrect dating.
