To Member Banks o f the
Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

During the past four years the paper currency exhibit of this bank
has been displayed in a large number of member banks in this District.
Comments from the bankers who have displayed the exhibit indicate that
it has received very favorable public reaction.
In view of the strong demand that has prevailed for the exhibit, we
have not felt until recently that we could make repeat reservations for the
display. Now that most of the initial demand has been satisfied, however,
the exhibit is more readily available than has been the case in the past.
Consequently, we are again bringing the matter to your attention, with
the thought that there may be member banks which would like to arrange
repeat displays.
The usual time allotted for display of the exhibit is about one week.
The exhibit, which represents every type of paper currency used in the
United States since 1772, is arranged in 15 frames, each of which is about
22 inches square. A small supply of brochures on the subject of United
States paper currency is provided with the exhibit.
All expenses in connection with the shipment of the exhibit to and
from member banks and all risk of loss are borne by this bank. We only
request that member banks give the exhibit the same care that they would
give to their own property.
If you are interested in obtaining the exhibit, you should write to the
Bank and Public Relations Department, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas,
Dallas, Texas.
Yours very truly,
W. D. GENTRY
First Vice President
