Anyone who spends time with documents comes across all sorts of handwriting. Most could be called "average", reasonably readable. Some is virtually undecipherable. Some is unusually clear and easy to understand. Some is amazingly elegant. I thought I'd simply post a few examples of handwriting that I have happened upon, adding others going forward as they rise to the top of one pile or another.
