IMPORTANT
1. No tender for less than $10,000 will be considered and each tender over $10,000 must be for an amount in multiples of
$5,000 (maturity value).
2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal Agent of the
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
cations relating to other matters should not be enclosed. Envelopes for submitting tenders may be obtained from this
bank or appropriate branch.
3. Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
4 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
should sign in the form “---------------------------------, a copartnership, by-----------------------------------------------------------------a member of the firm.”
5. Tenders from those other than incorporated banks and trust companies or responsible and recognized dealers in in vest­
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.
