1925 Brazil note

Anyone know if the cursive signature is handsigned or stamped on this bank note. I see some ink bleed thru to rev. Peace Roy

    Definitely hand signed. There are no printed signatures on the note. Brazilian currency from this era were required by law to have an ink signature from a treasury official in order to validate them.

    I am not sure if they ever tried to keep the signature in the lower right, for example, but all ones I have seen have signatures scrawled across the front like yours.

    I don't know if any of the signatures are identifiable as a specific treasury official. Value is I assume based on condition, denomination, and series. I got a small denomination bill in unc condition once for several dollars or less. They are a great collectable, though, as a transition between early banknotes that were routinely hand signed and modern banknotes that always have printed signatures.

    Now I'm really glad I asked about the signature. Peace Roy

  • I have a Brazilian note, believe it's from the 1940's. Hand signed makes a note quite quirky I think.

    Did additional research, the note also has an overprinting of 10 cruzeiros, which was applied in 1942 during economic strife.

  • Here's a later Brazilian overprint, when they re-evaluated their currency, 1960's I think

    The older one is more stylized. Thanks for sharing. Check out the British Guiana note I posted too.
