Within six months from the date of the vote to go into liquidation, the bank must deposit with the Treasurer of the United States lawful money sufficient to redeem all outstanding notes. This deposit is made directly, or through a correspondent or agent, with the Treasurer at Washington. When the deposit is made and the bank has paid to the Treasurer all amounts due for taxes on circulation and for expenses of redeeming outstanding notes, its bonds on deposit will be surrendered to it. Thereafter the shareholders are discharged from all liability on the outstanding notes, and these notes are redeemable only at the Treasury. If the bank fails to take up the bonds within 30 days after the expiration of the time specified, the Comptroller has the power to sell them at public auction in New York and, after providing for the redemption of the outstanding notes and the necessary expenses of the sale, to pay over any balance remaining to the bank. It is made the duty of the Treasurer, the federal reserve banks, and designated depositories of the United States, to assort and return to the Treasury for redemption the notes of such national banks as have failed or gone into voluntary liquidation, and the Treasurer causes the redeemed notes of such banks to be destroyed and charged to the redemption accounts of the banks.
