Anna Escobedo Cabral, the 42nd Treasurer of the United States, will individually hand-sign certification labels exclusively for Paper Money Guaranty®, the firm has announced.
As Treasurer of the United States, Cabral advised the Directors of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, which prints U.S. paper money, and the U.S. Mint, which strikes U.S. coins and medals. Her signature, along with the Treasury secretary’s, appeared on Federal Reserve Notes issued during her tenure. All series 2003A, 2004A, 2006 and 2006A notes bear her signature.
This is the first time that PMG has offered signed certification labels.
Cabral was appointed by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Nov. 20, 2004. She was sworn in on Jan. 19, 2005, and held the post for the duration of Bush’s second term.
According to Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of PMG, “We are delighted to work with Anna, who is incredibly accomplished in numismatics, politics, law and elsewhere. Her autograph enhances the collectability of the notes issued under her watch as Treasurer of the United States.”
“I’m excited to have this opportunity to again be involved in the numismatic community,” said Cabral.
