WHO PAYS FOR MUTILATED CURRENCY REDEMPTION?

Inspired by last week's item on the painstaking process of
reconstructing mutilated currency for redemption, Arthur Shippee
asks "Who paid for its recovery?"

[Good question.  It's Uncle Sam who pays.  I've never heard of the
submitter being charged a fee.  I confirmed this with Bob Leuver,
former head of the BEP.  He writes: "I never thought about it.  To
my knowledge we never changed for the service.  It was simply a
service of the Treasury Department.

You know, the Federal government performs or provides many
services such as currency recovery without charging."  -Editor]
