Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew Gets A New Signature

Back in January, when Jacob "Jack" Lew was a mere nominee for the position of Secretary of the Treasury, we fretted about his signature. (It is, after all, displayed on the dollar.) It looked like a doodle, or as New York Magazine called it, a "slinky that has lost its spring."

Well, now that Lew is officially the Secretary of the Treasury, his signature has become more, um, predictable. Here's the old one:

Jacob "Jack" Lew's signature, on the 2012 "Mid-Session Review" of the federal budget. He was director of the Office of Management and Budget at the time. WhiteHouse.gov hide caption

Here's the new one from a Financial Stability Oversight Council report posted on the Treasury website:
