(2) Eligible savings bonds of Series E and EE and savings notes to be redeemed in exchange for Series HH bonds under the provisions of Circular No. 2-80 (31 CFR part 352).
(b) Securities which may not be specially endorsed. The special endorsement procedure may not be used in any case in which payment or exchange:
