(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 796; Pub. L. 103-322, title
XXXII, Sec. 320903(a)(2), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2124.)
HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES
Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 99 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
321, Sec. 46, 35 Stat. 1097).
That portion of said section 99 relating to felonious taking was
omitted as covered by section 641 of this title.
The punishment by fine of not more than $5,000 or imprisoned not
more than 10 years, or both, was changed to harmonize with section
2111 of this title. The 15-year penalty is not excessive for an
offense of this type.
Minor verbal change was made.
