The top was written with a fountain pen. Notice the smooth flow of ink.

The bottom one was written with a green ballpoint pen. Such pens were rare and not widely used during Cobb's lifetime. While some early versions of the ballpoint were in use during the 1950's, I'm not aware of any models with green ink.

I did some quick research and it appears the Jotter ballpoint pen did come in green, starting in 1954. So that would be the terminus post quem for the bottom signature.



However, it appears from the barrel that the ink was more of a dark, forest green.

The color of the pen was not the color of the ink!
