re: P2 for Printing Money



Burton--

Go to the US Treasury Bureau of Engraving and Printing web site at 
http://www.bep.treas.gov/ to learn about currency production.  Also see 
http://www.moneyfactory.com which is also run by BEP. On the paper side, all 
US currency paper (really I think it's cotton fiber--no wood pulp--with 
security threads added) is made by, I think, Crane Paper in Pittsfield, 
MA--but good luck getting any info from them due to security (counterfeiting) 
concerns.
