DALLAS. TEXAS

Dallas, Texas, January 16, 1943

To AU Banking Institutions in the
Eleventh Federal Reserve District:
The Treasury has advised this bank that it has issued for
use by American forces in combat areas specially identifiable
silver certificates. These certificates are in denominations of
$1, $5 and $10 and are in all respects similar to silver certifi­
cates issued for circulation in the United States, except that
the seal to the right of the portrait on the face of the note is
printed with “ yellow” ink instead of blue as is done on the
certificates heretofore issued for circulation in the United
States.
Silver certificates identified with the “ yellow” seal enjoy
the same circulation privileges as other issues of United States
currency in the United States and other parts of the world.
Some of these certificates will undoubtedly be returned to the
United States by members of the American forces, or others.
If any of the silver certificates with “ yellow” seals come into
possession of your bank, it is requested that they be promptly
shipped to this bank o? to the branch in whose territory your
institution is located.

Yours very truly,
R. R. GILBERT
President
