English term or phrase: Commission DD
I'd like to know the meaning of ***DD*** in:

NOTARY PUBLIC - STATE OF NEW YORK
KATHRYN XXX
Commission DD 112233
Expires April 10, 2010

Thanks in advance

commission #DD 112233
Explanation:
The # sign is missing - every state has a notary commission, and some notary persons add their commission number to their documents; it lends more authenticity to their signature. If it is required to add that info, it varies by state.

An example of a NY Notary signature:

TERESA WEBB DOANE
MY COMMISSION #DD 276733
Expires: December 27, 2007
Bonded Thru Notary Public Underwriters

I believe it is part of the commission number, not a designation, as in NYS, there are not any separate licenses, or differentiation of types of notary.

In the URL reference, §131. Procedure of appointment; fees and commissions, the term "duly dated" is frequently noted, but it doesn't make sense in this context.

If it is important to have an absolute answer, and no other ProZ members have the answer before 8:30am EDT, I will make a simple phone call to the commission to ask for you, then enter the information at that time.

OK. That will be in about 5 1/2 to 6 hours - when they open. Also, when other members come online they may have the answer - I will follow through in any event, as promised.

The commission number on your document is a Florida state registered notary number.

The Florida license rep told me that *DD* is simply part of the number system, followed by 5 digits. Years ago, the commission numbers began with AA, then BB and so forth, and now, for many years, the State of FL notary commission numbers begin with DD.

I discovered this after calling NY (info below) and then
I called the notary underwriter's insurance company, and the representative immediately said "that's a Florida commission number if it starts with DD".

New York commission license numbers begin with 01 (non-attorney) or 02 (attorney), then the first 2 letters of the last name, then a 7 digit number; that has always been the system for NY.

So the answer is that it is does not represent words or anything besides being part of the Florida's notary licensing commission number assignment method.

Reference information:
I agree with all that debrite has said. Furthermore, you are not under any obligation to translate DD if you do not know for sure what it stands for, if anything. Failing which, ask your client.

IMO, and as stated before, it is a part of the Commission No. and the letter DD may?? correspond to a particular State, but I have no proof of that.

agree  Demi Ebrite: Tana, absolutely no problem at all, I clicked neutral by mistake (and lackof sleep!)T.Y. :-)
30 mins
  -> Good research on your part debrite. Why the neutral? I did say may? correspond to a State, but you have certainly done your homework. All credit to you. I haven't disagreed with you, nor duplicated your answer .. Hope you get some rest soon! Thanks.
