Circular No. 69-236
September 17, 1969


To All B a n k in g In stitu tio n s a n d O th e r s C o n c e rn e d
in th e E leventh F e d e ra l R eserv e District:

Y our a t te n t io n is in v ite d to t h e fo llo w in g s t a t e m e n t g iv in g d e ta ils o f tw o is s u e s o f T re a s u ry bills:
The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for two series of Treasury bills to the aggregate amount
of $1,500,000,000, or thereabouts, for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills maturing September 30, 1969, in the amount of
$1,501,007,000, as follows:
273-DAY BILLS (to maturity date) to be issued September 30, 1969, in the amount of $500,000,000, or there­
abouts, representing an additional amount of bills dated June 30, 1969, and to mature June 30, 1970, originally
issued in the amount of $1,201,406,000, the additional and original bills to be freely interchangeable.
365-DAY BILLS for $1,000,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated September 30, 1969, and to mature September
30, 1970.
The bills of both series will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter
provided, and at maturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in
denominations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (maturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern Day­
light Saving Time, Tuesday, September 23, 1969. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and in the case of competitive tenders the price offered must be expressed on the
basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. (Notwithstanding the fact that the oneyear bills will run for 365-days, the discount rate will be computed on a bank discount basis of 360-days, as is currently the
practice on all issues of Treasury bills.) It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special
envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of
Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or
trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Treasury Department of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves the
right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Subject to
these reservations, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues. Settlement for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on September 30, 1969,
in cash or other immediately available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing September 30, 1969. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of maturing
bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
The income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills does not have any special treatment,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. The bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, but are 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. For purposes of taxation the amount of discount
at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 )
of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered to
accrue until such bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital
assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued hereunder need include in his
income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase,
and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during the taxable year for which the return is
made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.

United States, with notation on the envelope reading “TENDER FOR TREASURY OFFERING”. Since envelopes
received with this legend will not be opened until after the closing time specified in the public announcement, communi­

Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
If a corporation makes the tender, the form should be signed by an officer of the corporation authorized to _make the
tender and the signing of the form by an officer of the corporation will be construed as a representation by him that he
has been so authorized. If the tender is made by a partnership it should be signed by a member of the firm, who

ment securities will be disregarded, unless accompanied by a deposit of 2 percent of the total amount (maturity value)
of the Treasury bills applied for, or unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of full payment by an
incorporated bank or trust company.
6. If the language of this form is changed in any respect, which, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury is
material, the tender may be disregarded.
