    I think this photograph is too early for the BEP. Paper money wasn’t printed by the BEP until around 1918. The photo is “cutting-machine-us-treasury”, don’t know if you added that or just “passed it on”. My guess is the photo was taken inside the Treasury Building. I see text in the lower right corner, but can’t read it.

  3. OK, I’ve posted a better image and corrected the text. You were absolutely right.
