New Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin sat down with CNBC’s Squawk Box Feb. 23 to discuss his new position, and among the discussion points was his signature that will appear on new Federal Resrve notes going forward.

Mnuchin’s signature made headlines last month when it was revealed he had in the past employed a messy, hard-to-read version.
