HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 104 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 50, 35 Stat. 1098; June 25, 1910, ch. 431, Sec. 6, 36
    Stat. 857).
      Reference to persons aiding or procuring was deleted as

    this title.
      Maximum fine was increased from $500 to $1,000 to conform to
    other comparable sections of this chapter. (See sections 1851 and
    1852 of this title.)
      Minor changes were also made in phraseology.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1996 - Pub. L. 104-294 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $1,000".
