Any authorized officer may, after filing with the Secretary of State his manual signature certified by him under oath, execute or cause to be executed with a facsimile signature in lieu of his manual signature:
(a) Any public security, provided that at least one signature required or permitted to be placed thereon shall be manually subscribed; and
(b) Any instrument of payment.
Upon compliance with this section by the authorized officer, his facsimile signature has the same legal effect as his manual signature.
