FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS
F I S C A L A G E N T O F T H E U N IT E D S T A T E S

Dallas, Texas, January 29, 1942

To Qualified A gents for the Issuance of
Defense Savings Bonds, Series E :

The Treasury Department is now supplying a new type of defense-bond
assembly, consisting of the bond and two punch-card registration stubs.
The punch-card stubs are provided to facilitate accounting, sorting, and
filing in the Treasury Department through the use of mechanical equip­
ment.
Any unissued bonds of the old type that you may have on hand as of
the close of business January 31, 1942, should be returned by registered
mail to this bank on Form FA-82 for credit as unissued stock, and all
issuing agents are requested to issue only bonds of the new type of assem­
bly on and after February 2, 1942. The Treasury Department’s instructions
are that under no circumstances should bonds of the old type be issued
after the close of business January 31, 1942.
Inasmuch as this bank now has on hand an adequate stock of bonds of
the new type of assembly, in all denominations, you should submit your
requisition for bonds to replace those of the old type of assembly returned
to this bank.
Your cooperation in handling bonds along the lines suggested will be
very helpful to this bank, as well as to the Treasury Department and will
be very much appreciated.
Yours very truly,
R. R. GILBERT
President
