Signers of U.S. Currency

From 1928 to the present day, forty-six different individuals have signed U.S. currency for the Treasury: twenty-eight Secretaries of the Treasury, eighteen Treasurers of the United States, and one Register of the Treasury. The table below lists all these signers of small-size currency, in alphabetical order, and presents a specimen of each signature.

For information on which series, denominations, and types of currency carry each of these signatures, see the chronology of small-size notes. Also available is a complete listing of all Treasury signatures since the introduction of U.S. paper currency in 1861, as well as separate chronological lists of Registers of the Treasury, Treasurers of the United States, and Secretaries of the Treasury (though I still don't have illustrations of most of the pre-1928 signatures), and a list of the Federal Reserve Bank officials whose signatures appear on the small-size Federal Reserve Bank Notes of Series 1929.
