HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

                                 1948 ACT
      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Secs. 413, 415, 418, 418a,
    419 (May 22, 1934, ch. 333, Secs. 1, 3, 6, 48 Stat. 794, 795; May
    22, 1934, ch. 333, Sec. 7, as added Aug. 3, 1939, ch. 413, Sec. 5,
    53 Stat. 1179; May 22, 1934, ch. 333, Sec. 7, renumbered Sec. 8 by
    Aug. 3, 1939, ch. 413, Sec. 6, 53 Stat. 1179; Aug. 3, 1939, ch.
    413, Secs. 1, 4, 5, 53 Stat. 1178, 1179).
      Section consolidates sections 413, 415, 417, 418, 418a, and 419
    of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed.
      Words "or with intent to steal or purloin, knowing the same to
    have been so stolen, converted, or taken" were omitted as
    surplusage, since property so "taken" is "stolen," and insertion of
    word "knowingly" after "Whoever" at beginning of section renders
    such omission possible.
      Reference to persons causing or procuring was omitted as
    unnecessary in view of definition of "principal" in section 2 of
    this title.
      Section 413 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., providing the short
    title "National Stolen Property Act," was omitted as not
    appropriate in a revision.
      Section 414 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., containing definitions
    of "interstate or foreign commerce," "securities," and "money," is
    incorporated in sections 10 and 2311 of this title.
      Section 417 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., relating to
    indictments and determination of "value" of goods, wares,
    merchandise, securities, and money referred to in indictments, is
    also incorporated in section 2311 of this title.
      Section 418 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., relating to venue, was
    omitted as completely covered by section 3237 of this title.
      Section 418a of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., relating to
    conspiracy, was omitted as covered by section 371 of this title,
    the general conspiracy section.
      Section 419 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., providing that nothing
    contained in the National Stolen Property Act should be construed
    to repeal, modify, or amend any part of the National Motor Vehicle
    Theft Act, was omitted as unnecessary, in view of this revision and
    reenactment of the provisions of the latter act (sections 10, 2311-
    2313 of this title).
      Changes were made in phraseology and arrangement.
                                 1949 ACT
      This amendment [see section 45] restates and clarifies the first
    paragraph of section 2314 of title 18, U.S.C., to conform to the
    original law upon which the section is based.

    of this section by striking "not more than $5,000" and inserting

    in second par.

    corporation of any foreign country" after "foreign government" in
    last par. and inserted at end "This section also shall not apply to
    any falsely made, forged, altered, counterfeited, or spurious
    representation of any bank note or bill issued by a bank or
    corporation of any foreign country which is intended by the laws or
    usage of such country to circulate as money."

    transportation of persons in schemes to defraud.
      1949 - Act May 24, 1949, substituted "knowing the same to have
