    Abstract

    A gelatin transfer duplicator can be used effectively to reproduce facsimile signatures resulting in forgeries of a reasonably good quality. However, an examiner of questioned documents who has a comprehensive understanding of the various stamping devices used in producing legitimate facsimile signatures should be able to recognize the fraudulent reproductions. It is also possible to identify the fraudulent reproductions with the matrix materials used in the reproduction process. An explanation of the process utilized in the examination and identification of these forgeries is furnished.
