F e d e r a l r e s e r v e b a n k OF DALLAS Dallas, Texas, June 9,1945 To All Banking Institutions in the Eleventh Federal Reserve D istrict: On January 16, 1943, your bank was requested to promptly ship to this bank or to the branch in whose territory your institution is located any silver certificates bearing a yellow seal which it received. The Treasury has advised this bank that in view o f recent develop ments in connection with military operations in the European and Medi terranean areas, substantial amounts of silver certificates bearing a yellow seal will be paid out in such manner as to enter into circulation in the United States. Inasmuch as the circulation of this currency will no longer be confined to combat areas, it will not be necessary for banking institu tions to continue to withhold from circulation any of these certificates which come into their possession. Effective immediately this specially iden tifiable currency may continue to circulate until it is retired in the normal course of operations as it becomes unfit for further circulation. Yours very truly, R. R.
