Description This pamphlet was designed to give a brief description of the securities to be offered by the American Trust and Banking Company from June to July of 1944. As part of the Fifth War Loan American Trust and Banking sold several types of government bonds. These included US War Savings Bonds, US Savings Bonds series F & G, US Treasury notes 7/8 %, US Treasury Notes 1.25%, US Treasury Notes 2%, and US Treasury Notes 2.5%. Included with each of these kinds of government bonds is a description of the bond, its rate of return, and when the bonds are due, as well as much more information about the bonds. There is also a call to the patriotism of the customers of American Trust and Banking and to all of Hamilton County, stating, underneath a picture of a G.I. with the caption "Fight By His Side", "there are more good reasons for buying war bonds than for buying any single thing ever offered to the American people". The Fifth War Loan is described as the biggest and most vitally important financial effort of the whole war, and that the national goal is $16 billion, while the quota for Hamilton County is $15,139,000. These bonds are advertised for sale at the special war bond booth at American Trust and Banking.
