Syllabus

Under authority of § 3 of the National Banking Act, as amended, and pursuant to a consolidation agreement, a state bank was consolidated in 1935 with a national banking association. The transfer to the consolidated association of title to the property of the state bank was not evidenced by deed, conveyance, assignment or other instrument.

Held:

1. In respect of (a) securities held by the state bank as legal and beneficial owner and (b) securities to which the state bank held legal title in fiduciary capacities, the transfer was "wholly by operation of law" within the meaning of Treasury Regulations 71 (1932 ed.), Arts. 34(r) and 35(r), and thereby exempt from the stamp tax imposed by § 800, Schedule A, pars. 3 and 9, of the Revenue Act of 1926, as amended. P. 321 U. S. 588.

2. The transfer to the consolidated association of the realty of the state bank was not subject to the stamp tax imposed by § 800, Schedule A-8, of the Revenue Act of 1926, as amended, since the property was not conveyed by any "deed, instrument, or writing," was not "sold," and there was no "purchaser." P. 321 U. S. 589.
