Simulated Signature Case Study

Case studies give you a chance to examine handwriting and signatures and determine their authenticity. A different handwriting problem will be presented periodically.

Can you detect a simulated signature?

Since forgery involves intent to deceive, we refer to signatures that are not genuine as simulations. Since no one signs his name exactly the same way each time, we need multiple known signatures for comparison. See if you can determine if the questioned signature is a genuine signature or a simulation
