Cash Offering of
2V2 Percent Treasury Bonds of 1962-67
Dated and bearing interest from May 5, 1942

Due June 15, 1967

ADDITIONAL ISSUE

To all Banking Institutions, and Others Concerned,
in the Second Federal Reserve District:

The following press statement was today made public:
Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau today announced the offering, through the Federal Reserve Banks, of an
additional amount of 2^2 percent Treasury Bonds of 1962-67, f o r which cash subscriptions are invited at par and
accrued interest, the amount to be issued not being specifically limited. At the same time the Secretary announced
that additional rights not heretofore accorded would be attached to the bonds, through provision for their optional
redemption, at par and accrued interest, upon the death of the owner, f o r the purpose of satisfying Federal estate
taxes, full particulars in such respect appearing in the official circular.
The bonds now offered will be an addition to and will form a part of the series of 2 % percent Treasury Bonds
of 1962-67 issued pursuant to Department Circular No. 685, dated May 4, 1942. They are identical in all respects
with such bonds, with which they will be freely inter-changeable. The bonds are dated May 5, 1942, and bear interest
from that date at the rate of 2y 2 percent per annum payable semiannually, with the first payment due December 15,
1942. The bonds will mature J u n e 15,1967, but may be redeemed, at the option of the United States, on and after June
15, 1962. Bonds registered both as to principal and interest will be issued in denominations of $100, $500, $1,000,
$5,000, $10,000 and $100,000; they will not be issued in coupon f o r m prior to May 5, 1952, but coupon bonds in these
denominations will be available and freely inter-changeable with the registered bonds a f t e r that date. These bonds
will not be available f o r subscription by commercial banks accepting demand deposits, nor eligible for transfer to such
banks for a period of ten years from May 5. The bonds may be pledged as collateral for loans, including loans by
commercial banks which accept demand deposits, but any such banks acquiring the bonds because of the failure of such
loans to be paid at maturity will be required to dispose of them in the same manner as they dispose of other assets
not eligible to be owned by banks. As the offering is not specifically limited in amount, it will remain open for a period
longer than customary.
Pursuant to the provisions of the Public Debt Act of 1941, interest upon the bonds now offered shall not have
any exemption, as such, under Federal Tax Acts now or hereafter enacted. The full provisions relating to taxability
are set forth in the official circular released today.
Subscriptions will be received at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, and at the Treasury Department,
Washington. Banking institutions and security dealers generally may submit subscriptions for account of customers,
but only the Federal Reserve Banks and the Treasury Department are authorized to act as official agencies. Subscriptions must be accompanied by payment in full.
The right is reserved to close the books as to any or all subscriptions at any time without notice. Subscriptions
will be allotted in full as received, and payment at p a r and accrued interest from May 5, 1942 must be made on August
3, 1942, or on later allotment. Accrued interest to August 3, 1942, is $6.16293 per $1,000, and each day's accrued
interest thereafter is $0.0683 per $1,000. Delivery of bonds allotted hereunder will not be effected earlier than September 1.

The terms of this offering are set forth in Treasury Circular No. 692, dated August 3, 1942,
copy of which is printed on the reverse side. The subscription books are now open, and applications
will be received by this bank as fiscal agent of the United States.

II.

D E S C R I P T I O N OF B O N D S

1. The bonds now offered will be an addition to and will form a part of the series of 2% percent Treasury Bonds of 1962-67
issued pursuant to Department Circular No. 685, dated May 4, 1942, will be freely interchangeable therewith, and are identical in
all respects therewith.
2. The bonds will be dated May 5, 1942, and will bear interest from that date at the rate of 2y2 percent per annum, payable
on a semiannual basis on June 15 and December 15 in each year until the principal amount becomes payable, the first payment being

June 15, 1962, in whole or in part, at par and accrued interest, on any interest day or days, on 4 months' notice of redemption
given in such manner as the Secretary of the Treasury shall prescribe. In case of partial redemption the bonds to be redeemed
will be determined by such method as may be prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. From the date of redemption designated in any such notice, interest on the bonds called for redemption shall cease.
3. The income derived from the bonds shall be subject to all Federal taxes, now or hereafter imposed. The bonds shall be
subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt from all taxation now or
hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the United States, or by any local

4. The bonds will not be acceptable to secure deposits of public moneys before May 5, 1952, they will not bear the circulation

accept demand deposits, and for exchanges of denominations. They will not be eligible for transfer to commercial banks which
accept demand deposits before May 5, 1952. However, the bonds may be pledged as collateral for loans, including loans by commercial banks which accept demand deposits, but any such bank acquiring such bonds before May 5, 1952, because of the failure of
such loans to be paid at maturity will be required to dispose of them in the same manner as they dispose of other assets not eligible
to be owned by banks.
6. Any bonds issued hereunder, or under the provisions of Department Circular No. 685, dated May 4, 1942, which upon the

estate taxes.
Registered bonds submitted for redemption hereunder must be duly assigned to " T h e Secretary of the Treasury for redemption,
the proceeds to be paid to the Collector of Internal Revenue at

interest payment date; 1 bonds received during the closed period for payment at a date after the books reopen will be paid at par
plus accrued interest from the reopening of the books to the date of payment. In either case checks for the full six months interest

by Form PD 1782/ properly completed, signed and sworn to, and by a certificate of the appointment of the personal representatives,
under seal of the court, dated not more than 6 months prior to the submission of the bonds, which shall show that at the date thereof
the appointment was still in force and effect. Upon payment of the bonds appropriate memorandum receipt will be forwarded to
the representatives, which will be followed in due course by formal receipt from the Collector of Internal Revenue.
7. Except as provided in the preceding paragraphs, the bonds will be subject to the general regulations of the Treasury
Department, now or hereafter prescribed, governing United States bonds.
III.

interest thereafter is $0.0683 per $1,000. Any payment made by check drawn on any bank other than the Federal Reserve
