New Signature on Notes|
June 25, 2013
Introduction of the facsimile signature of Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew, which will appear on Series 2013 Federal Reserve Notes, came as a tweet June 18.
This replaced the more formal ceremonial debuts of years ago.
It is also clear from comparison to his signature on prior federal documents that Lew has been practicing. It is still debatable as to whether the improved version is legible.
Another break with the past is the denomination on which it will first be used. It will appear on $5s that will go into production during the summer. Usually, the $1 has had that honor and for short-serving Treasury secretaries has sometimes been the only denomination on which their signatures appear.
