Paying agents, even those qualified under Department Circular 888, Revised, may not handle these transactions. They may, however, forward bonds, for the owner, to a Federal Reserve Bank or Branch. The maturing bonds should be accompanied by an application or applications indicating the amount of the proceeds to be applied to the purchase o f Series E or H bonds, indicating the denominations and registration desired. “ The Series E or H bonds may be issued in any authorized form of registration, provided the presenting owner of the Series F or G bonds is named as owner or coowner of the Series E or H bonds. “ The Series E or H bonds may be in any authorized denomination so long as the total purchase price of the bonds issued does not exceed the total maturity value of and final interest payable on the bonds presented.

If bonds of different maturity dates are presented for purchase of one bond, the last maturity date on the bonds presented will deter mine the earliest date as of which the new bond may be issued.” Any maturing bonds that are to be exchanged for new bonds should be submitted to this bank twenty to thirty days in advance of their maturity dates.
