To tell where a bill was printed, look for a plate position indicator on the bill's front. It's a letter with a small number to the right and indicates where a particular bill was located on the printing sheet before the bills were cut apart.

If the indicator has a small "FW" to the left of the letter it was printed at Fort Worth. No "FW" means it was printed in Washington. For example

- A bill with the indicator B3 was printed in Washington.

- A bill with FWC2 came from Fort Worth.

MythbustingContrary to popular misconceptions, the US Mint does NOT print paper money; they only make coins. The BEP and Mint are both parts of the Treasury Department, but they're entirely separate operations.

When was the 1873 replica trade dollar printed?

There's no way to know unless you can determine who manufactured it. Replica coins are made by private companies and by law have to display the word COPY somewhere in the design, but they don't have to have a manufacturing date. Also note that coins aren't printed. They're struck or minted. When dealing with money, printing refers only to paper bills.
