PAYMENT OF FINAL INTEREST ON REGISTERED TREASURY SECURITIES

To All Banking Institutions and Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

There is quoted below a press statement issued by the Treasury Department on January 15,
in regard to a change in the method of making final interest payments on registered securities:
A change in the method of making final interest payments on all the Treasury’s
registered marketable securities will become effective for the first tim e on the 2%
percent bonds remaining for redemption on February 15, the Treasury said today.
T he revised regulations were published on December 30, 1964, and will speed
up payments of final interest and result in a uniform method covering periodic
interest payments of registered Treasury securities.
Heretofore the final interest payment on these securities has been paid with the
principal instead of by separate check as was the case with prior interest payments.
The final interest installment will be paid under the new regulations by Treasury
check in the same manner as all earlier interest installments have been paid: That
is, it will be paid on the maturity date by check payable to the holder of record on
the Department’s books at the close of business one full month prior to that date.
This means that purchasers of registered securities during the month preceding
maturity will no longer receive the final interest payment. Accordingly, purchases
during the month preceding maturity will involve adjustments on account of accrued
interest just as adjustments have been necessary on purchases of registered securities
during the final month of any other interest period.

Yours very truly,
Watrous H. Irons
President
