Anyone know if the cursive signature is handsigned or stamped on this bank note. I see some ink bleed thru to rev. Peace Roy
Oops! I forgot. Here they are.
@JBK I would like your comments on this note. Have a good day.
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.
