JOHN J. FORD SIGNATURE

Last week Leon Worden asked for a copy of John J. Ford's signature
to verify an inscription in a book he owns.  Jim Spilman writes:
"JJF and I did a considerable amount of cooperative numismatic
research together in the late 1960s through mid-1970s era  and I
have a considerable correspondence file with numerous examples of
his signature.

John normally signed his letters and notes with only his initials
JJF.  When he used his "full" signature it was JJFordJr - a
continuous but legible scrawl."

Jim attached scans of two letters with examples of John's signature.
I forwarded them to Leon.  He writes: "What great service -- thanks
to which I can say that the name written inside the cover of my
book is absolutely NOT the signature of J.J. Ford!"
