    This study explores the susceptibility of pencil writings to being transferred when transparent cellophane tape is used as the conveying agent. Comparative examinations of transferred pencil signatures with genuine pencil signatures disclosed that a transferred signature could be mistakenly identified as an original writing. The identification of characteristics inherent to transferred writing is discussed. The study seeks to acquaint the questioned document examiner with pitfalls intrinsic to the examination of pencil writings covered by cellophane tape.
