In my opinion, autopen or preprinted autopen
Thanks, figured so much :(
I´ll post some more pictures just for fun, if there is any doubt or if it makes it even more obvious it’s a autopen/preprinted autopen then let me know
At least its look like its applied with a different color then the text and Josefs signature looks to be “real” (autopen or signature) and not preprinted, the paper has an very high texture so can account for some of the shaky handwriting
