T he T reasury D epartm ent, by this public notice, invites tenders for two series of T reasury bills to the aggregate am ount of
$1,700,000,000, or thereabouts, for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills m aturing Decem ber 31, 1970, in the am ount of
$4,606,518,000, as follows:
273-DAY B IL L S (to m a tu rity d ate) to be issued Decem ber 31, 1970, in the am ount of $500,000,000, or there­
abouts, representing an additional am ount of bills dated Septem ber 30, 1970, and to m ature Septem ber 30, 1971
(C U S IP NO. 912793 K S 4 ), originally issued in the am ount of $1,202,480,000, th e additional and original bills
to be freely interchangeable.
365-DAY B IL L S for $1,200,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated D ecem ber 31, 1970, and to m ature Decem ber 31,
1971 (C U SIP NO. 912793 K V 7).
T h e bills of both series will be issued on a discount basis under com petitive and noncom petitive bidding as hereinafter
provided, and a t m aturity th eir face am ount will be payable w ithout interest. T hey will be issued in bearer form only, and in
denom inations of $10,000, $15,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (m atu rity value).
T enders will be received a t F ederal Reserve B anks and Branches up to th e closing hour, one-thirty p.m., E astern
Standard Tim e, W ednesday, D ecem ber 23, 1970. T enders will not be received a t th e T reasury D epartm ent, W ashington. Each

tenders the price offered m ust be expressed on the basis of 100, w ith not more th an three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions m ay not
be used. (N otw ithstanding the fact th a t the one-year bills will ru n for 365-days, the discount rate will be com puted on a bank dis­
count basis of 360-days, as is currently th e practice on all issues of T reasury bills.) I t is urged th a t tenders be m ade on the printed
forms and forwarded in th e special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal R eserve B anks or Branches on application therefor
Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided th e nam es of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. O thers th an banking institutions will not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for their own account.
T enders will be received w ithout deposit from incorporated banks and tru st companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. T enders from others m ust be accom panied by paym ent of 2 percent of th e face am ount of
T reasury bills applied for, unless th e tenders are accom panied by an express guaranty of paym ent by an incorporated bank or
tru st company.
Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t the F ederal Reserve B anks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be m ade by the T reasury D ep artm ent of th e am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those sub­
m itting com petitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e Secretary of th e T reasury expressly
reserves the right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final.
Subject to these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one
bidder will be accepted in full a t the average price (in three decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues.
Settlem ent for accepted tenders in accordance with th e bids m ust be m ade or com pleted a t the Federal Reserve B ank on Decem ber
31, 1970, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing Decem ber 31, 1970.
Cash and exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the p ar value
of m aturing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of th e new bills.
U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and th e bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other th a n life insurance com panies) issued here­
under m ust include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, th e difference between the price paid for the bills, w hether on
original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m a tu rity during the
taxable year for which the retu rn is made.
T reasury D epartm en t Circular No. 418 (cu rren t revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of the T reasury bills and
govern th e conditions of th eir issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve B ank or Branch.

Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
