On some 1960 Cuban banknotes, the bank president's signature is "Che".
Would this be Che Guevara, or another Che? Does anyone here know?

Many thanks.

Howdy, from Garrison!!

Yep, it is indeed the signature of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentinian doctor who died in Bolivia in the
later '60's.  Some of the Cuban people would place a small cross in front of the 'Che' signature making a
pictogram pun being "Cruz-Che" as an allusion to Kruschev, the leader of the USSR at the time.

Howdy from England! Thanks for setting that straight Jay.

Do you (or anyone here) happen to know if the current Pick values are
realistic for 1958+1960 cuban notes - generally speaking? If not, is
there a rule-of-thumb figure I should divide the Pick values by?

Thanks
