My DH back in 2008 inherited some HH Bonds. Talk about a real to do at the bank when he attempted to cash them. None of the youngsters that worked at the bank had never seen them and had a devil of a time trying to figure out how to cash them and for how much.

Dear old FIL successfully never paid taxes on the old Es that he rolled into the Hs.....We took care of the taxes on our return that year. I'm sure FIL was laughing his final "gotcha ya and didn't pay a dime in taxes."
