Signers of U.S. Currency

From 1861 to the present day, eighty different individuals have signed U.S. currency for the Treasury: seventeen Registers of the Treasury, thirty-three Treasurers of the United States, and thirty-one Secretaries of the Treasury. The table below lists all these signers in alphabetical order and presents a specimen of each signature. (Well, most of them, anyway; this page is under construction for the forseeable future....)

Also available are separate chronological lists of Registers of the Treasury, Treasurers of the United States, and Secretaries of the Treasury.
