MORE ON FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES AUTOGRAPHED BY SIGNERS

Jeff Kelley writes: "George Cuhaj provided an excellent
explanation of autopen signatures as they might appear on
notes sent to the Secretary of the Treasury or the Treasurer
for autographing.  His assessment of the likelihood of a
signature’s authenticity was as follows:

"My general thoughts are that if you have a Secretary of
the Treasury signature, and it was not signed in person,
then it is very probably autopen. If you have a Treasurer
of the U.S. and it was not signed in person, it could be
either."

"I would agree with his assessment, but only as it relates
to sitting Treasury officials.  If collectors are writing
to former officials, the chances of getting a genuine signature
increase dramatically.  While a few business leaders employ
the autopen, it is very likely that if a note comes back in
the mail signed by a former Treasury official it would be a
genuine signature."
