I kinda like the name printed, since I have to use a reference book or web site to decipher who's name is on it.

Looks a little exaggerated though ... Earlier this year, Mnuchin explained that he had worked on his signature ;) and while the old one was difficult to decipher indeed, the one that he "demoed" in February looks fine to me. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/02/23/heres-the-new-signature-that-will-be-on-every-dollar-in-your-wallet.html  The block letters on the bills suggest that he went from one extreme to the other. ;)

My understanding is that they submit 10 for them to select from.  So we will never know what the other options would have been.

Jack Lew, who had the position under Obama had to change his signature for the US banknotes as well.
