F ederal R eserve Ban k 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.
