TREASU RY DEPARTM ENT
W ashington

The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for $1,500,000,000, or thereabouts, o f 91-day Treasury
bills, for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills maturing July 23, 1953, in the amount o f $1,500,526,000, to be issued on
a discount basis under competitive and non-competitive bidding as hereinafter provided. The bills o f this series w ill be dated
July 23, 1953, and w ill mature October 22, 1953, when the face amount w ill be payable without interest. They w ill
be issued in bearer form only, and in denominations o f $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $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, two o ’clock p.m., Eastern
Daylight Saving time, Monday, July 20, 1953. Tenders w ill not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for an even multiple o f $1,000, and in the case o f competitive tenders the price offered must be expressed on
the basis o f 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 w ill be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or
Branches on application therefor.
Others than banking institutions w ill not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account. Tenders w ill be
received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized dealers in in­
vestment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment o f 2 percent o f the face amount o f Treasury bills
applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty o f payment by an incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders w ill be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, follow ing which
public announcement w ill be made by the Secretary o f the Treasury o f the amount and price range o f accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders w ill be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary o f 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, non-competitive tenders for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder w ill be accepted
in full at the average price (in three decimals) o f accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in accordance
with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on July 23, 1953, in cash or other immediately
available funds or in a like face amount o f Treasury bills maturing July 23, 1953. Cash and exchange tenders will receive
equal treatment. Cash adjustments w ill be made for differences between the par value o f maturing bills accepted in exchange
and the issue price o f the new bills.
The income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition o f the bills, shall
not have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition o f Treasury bills shall not have any special
treatment, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code, or laws amendatory or supplementary thereto. The bills 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 o f the possessions o f the United States,
or by any local taxing authority. For purposes o f taxation the amount o f discount at which Treasury bills are originally
sold by the United States shall be considered to be interest. Under Sections 42 and 117(a)(1) o f the Internal Revenue
Code, as amended by Section 115 of the Revenue A ct o f 1941, the amount o f discount at which bills issued hereunder are
sold shall not be considered to accrue until such bills shall be sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are
excluded from consideration as capital assets. A ccordingly, the owner o f Treasury bills (other than life insurance com ­
panies) issued hereunder need include in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills,
whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at
maturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department Circular N o. 418, as amended, and this notice, prescribe the terms o f the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions o f their issue. Copies o f the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.

This Bank will receive tenders up to 2 p.m., Eastern D aylight Saving time, Monday, July 20, 1953, at the Securi­
ties Department o f its H ead Office and at its Buffalo Branch. Please use the form on the reverse side o f this circular

immediately available funds or in maturing Treasury bills.
