Duisenberg, Dr. Wim F.,
First president of the ECB, the European Central Bank in
Frankfurt, before that president of the DNB, De Nederlandse Bank (Dutch
national Bank) and before that Minister of Finance of The Netherlands.
Signature from 1975 on a white card,
to his cartoon, with accompanying letter (in Dutch) on blue
of the Ministry of Finance (with blue coat of arms of The Netherlands,
lion and crown) from his secretary J. C. van den Adel, to Ruth
Bleyerveld in Apeldoorn: (in my translation into English) "Dear Ruth,
in response to
your letter of January 6th I enclose for you the signature of
Duisenberg. Friendly greetings".
The signature shows even after 27 years strong resemblance with his
featuring on all Euro bank notes issued during his bank presidency.
price: 75 Euro.
