Toward the end of the 1970s, the SDR became used in some commercial transactions but in a very limited way. Some eurobond issues were denominated in them as well as some bank time deposits.

A customer paid for the asset in his native currency and received the same, or other, currency back upon liquidation of the SDR asset.

The outright buying and selling of Treasury bills is not as common as two-sided transactions that are employed frequently in open market operations. These are known as repurchase and reverse repurchase agreements, repos and reverses, that are designed to either add or drain reserves on a temporary basis. Under certain conditions, the Fed may enter into purchase/sale arrangements where it agrees to buy bills and sell them back to a dealer later at a specified price.
