Check Out the New Signature on Your Benjamins

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has unveiled his signature that will be placed on U.S. currency starting this fall.

The former White House chief of staff who President Obama nominated to succeed Timothy Geithner, had been known for a rather loopy looking signature that didn't appear to resemble his name.

The refurbished signature, which the U.S. Treasury tweeted out on its Twitter account shortly after 2 p.m. EDT, is more legible in its cursive manuscript. Holders of the updated Federal Reserve notes can even make out the upper-case, cursive "J" to represent Lew's middle name, Joseph.
