Circular No. 72-264
November 15, 1972


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

Your attention is invited to the fo llo w ing statem ent giving details of an issue of Treasury bills:

The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for $1,800,000,000, or thereabouts, of 355-day Treasury
bills for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills maturing November 30, 1972, in the amount of $5,803,525,000. The bills of this
series will be dated November 30, 1972, and will mature November 20, 1973 (CUSIP No. 912793 R E 8).
The bills will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter provided, and at
maturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in denominations of
$10,000, $15,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (maturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern
Standard Time, Wednesday, November 22, 1972. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for a minimum of $10,000. Tenders over $10,000 must be in multiples of $5,000. In the case of competitive ten­
ders the price offered must be expressed on the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions may not
be used. It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied
by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of
Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or
trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Treasury Department of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Only those sub­
mitting competitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary of the Treasury 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, noncompetitive tenders for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in accor­
dance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on November 30, 1972, in cash or other immediately
available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing November 30, 1972. Cash and exchange tenders will re­
ceive equal treatment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of maturing bills accepted in
exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued here­
under must include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference between the price paid for the bills, whether
on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption a t maturity during
the taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
In accordance w ith the a b o v e announcem ent, tenders w ill be received a t this b a n k a n d its branches a t El Paso,
Houston an d San Antonio up to tw elv e -th irty p.m., Central Standard Time, W ed n es d a y , N ovem ber 2 2 , 1972. Tenders

Y ours v e ry truly,
P. E. C o ld w e ll
