Dallas, Texas, July 17, 1958


To all Banking Institutions and Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District;
There is quoted below a press statement issued today by the Treasury Department in regard to
the new exchange offering:
“The Treasury Department announced today that subscription books will be opened on
Monday, July 21, for refunding the Certificates of Indebtedness maturing August 1, and the
two issues of Treasury bonds called for redemption on September 15. The exchange offering
will consist of a new 1% percent Certificate of Indebtedness to be dated August 1, 1958, and
to mature August 1, 1959.
“Exchange will be made par for par in the case of the maturing certificates. In the case
of the called bonds, interest at their respective rates will be allowed to September 15 and coupons
due September 15, 1958, should be detached from the bonds when surrendered and cashed when
due. All remaining coupons should be attached to the bonds when surrendered. Accrued interest
on the new certificates from August 1 to September 15,1958 ($1.98709 per $1,000) should be paid
with subscriptions where coupon bonds are to be exchanged. In the case of registered bonds,
the accrued interest will be deducted from the checks in payment of final interest.
“The subscription books will be open July 21 through July 23 for this exchange offering.
Any subscription addressed to a Federal Reserve Bank or Branch, or to the Treasurer of the
United States, and placed in the mail before midnight Wednesday, July 23, will be considered
as timely.
“The 2l^ percent and 2% percent bonds called for payment on September 15 which the
holders do not elect to exchange for the new certificates will be paid on their due date.
“The Treasury also announced that within the next three weeks it will offer for subscription
a security due in a year or less to cover its cash requirements during the next couple of months.
“The maturing issues are:
4 percent Certificates of Indebtedness dated August 1, 1957, due August 1,
1958 — $11,519 million
2l^ percent Bonds dated February 1, 1944, called for redemption September
15, 1958 — $3,818 million
2% percent Bonds dated March 1, 1952, called for redemption September 15,
1958 — $927 million.”
Official circulars and subscription forms for the offering will be mailed to reach you by Monday,
