Law/Patents - Law (general) / Birth Certificate
Portuguese term or phrase: (ass.)
I have got another one.

I came across the following abbreviation in a birth certificate from Mozambique. While I understand what the rest mean, I am stuck at (ass.). What does it represent?

(ass.) Impostos do selo tres escudos. (ass.)

English translation:signed, signature
Explanation:
I'm only guessing, but in Brazilian documents and certificates the abbreviation "ass." may stand for "signature", i.e., it indicates that someone signed or should sign in the place where the the abbreviation is located in the document. Sometimes it appears as (ass.), sometimes as [ass.].

Good luck!

In this case, the official may have placed his signature on both the left and the right of the tax stamp (to validate it).
