This program was conducted outside of the Republic of Vietnam with a mission of disseminating news and facts to the North Vietnamese audience. Themes used on these leaflets included the social and economic prosperity of the Republic of Vietnam. The North Vietnamese reader was asked to compare this with conditions in the North.
The campaign attempted to counter the false or misleading propaganda produced by the North Vietnamese government and to provide information which was not ordinarily received by the North Vietnamese public.
This leaflet was dropped during Operation Fact Sheet, later changed to Operation Frantic Goat, directed against North Vietnam from 14 April until the bombing halt in 31 March The code indicates that the Studies and Observations Group organization assigned to the task was the Air Studies Branch.
Another aspect of the Frantic Goat program was to raise the level of leaflets dropped in the North from about 60 million per month to million with 60 million directed at the Red River delta.

The back depicts a peasant's thatched-roof cottage surrounded by vegetation near a body of water. For instance, at the top of the genuine banknote is "Vietnam," while the parody reads "Vietnam Cong-Hoa" "Vietnam Republic".
Another change appears in the center of the vignette. Both the genuine and the parody depict a peasant cottage, but the parody places a woman waving and holding a small child in front of this cottage.
