Dallas, Texas, June 12,1945

P EN ALTY ENVELOPES HELD B Y ISSUING AGENTS

To All Qualified Issuing Agents
of United States Savings Bonds, Series E :

Under Post Office Department regulations all special penalty envelopes
used for forwarding savings bonds to purchasers on or after July 1, 1945,
must contain in the upper right corner, in parenthesis, centered beneath the
words “ Penalty for Private Use to Avoid Payment of Postage, $300,” one of
the following identifying symbols: “ PMGC” or “ GPO.”
All penalty envelopes furnished you by this bank in the future will carry
the appropriate symbol; however, if you have any penalty envelopes on
hand on July 1, 1945, which do not carry one of the above symbols, it will
be necessary to supply the symbol “ PMGC” by rubber stamp or otherwise
immediately below the penalty clause on each envelope before it is placed
in the mails.
Special penalty labels are covered under the same regulations, but inas­
much as they are furnished by the Government Printing Office they should
all carry the symbol “ GPO.” All such labels held by you on July 1, 1945,
therefore, should be stamped or overprinted with the symbol “ GPO” before
being used in the mails.
