    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 749; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(H), (L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147;
    Pub. L. 104-294, title VI, Sec. 606(a), Oct. 11, 1996, 110 Stat.

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 79 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 34, 35 Stat. 1095).
      Words "prize money" were deleted on the ground that they are an
    anachronism and were so before 1909. (See reviser's note under
    section 915 of this title.)
      Mandatory punishment provision was rephrased in the alternative.
      The smaller punishment for an offense involving $100 or less was
    added. (See reviser's note to sections 641 and 645 of this title.)
      The maximum term of "five years" was substituted for "ten years"
    and "$10,000" was substituted for "$5,000" as being more in harmony
    with punishment provision of similar sections. (See reviser's note
    under section 1001 of this title.)
      Minor changes in phraseology were made.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1996 - Pub. L. 104-294 substituted "$1,000" for "$100".
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $10,000" after "instrument, shall be" and for
    "fined not more than $1,000" after "he shall be".
