I've been reading a lot of references to the "Peace Tower" appearing in the hologram. Especially from the articles referring to the focus group recognizing religious symbolism in it, like this article.

The tower on the $100 is NOT the Peace Tower! It is the south tower of the East Block!

You're right! Good catch. The Journey $100 features the East Block as well, so the more adept among us should have noticed this, but I for one hadn't yet made the correct identification.
