FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS
FISCAL AGENT O F THE UNITED STATES

Dallas, Texas, November 24, 1958

To all Qualified Issuing Agents
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:
We have received information from the Treasury Department that a new 25^
U. S. Savings Stamp is now available through post offices. This new stamp is attracĀ­
tively printed in red, white, and blue, in contrast to the older issue printed in green.
The familiar design of the Minute Man is continued on the new stamp but with the
addition of our flag in the background.
According to the Treasury, the new stamp is part of general Treasury plans for
intensifying its promotion of thrift and the purchase of savings bonds. In this conĀ­
nection, the new stamp has been packaged in attractive eye-appealing gift books
containing 10 or 20 stamps to be sold, respectively, for $2.50 and $5. These books
will be particularly desirable for use at birthdays, holidays and other special
occasions. The new stamp will, of course, continue to be available in sheet form for
individual purchases.
We understand that the sale of the green savings stamp will be continued,
together with the new design, until the stock of the new stamp is adequate. At that
time, the green stamp will be withdrawn from sale. Issuing agents should continue to
accept green stamps whenever they are presented in part or full payment for a
savings bond, and the green savings stamps and the new stamps may be included
in the same album.
