Forma de firma utilizada por personas que no saben escribir.

Es lo único que se me ocurre, ya que antes dice "Signature or mark of payer", es decir, Firma o signo del pagador.

Te copio abajo lo que es una firma mediante signo o señal.

"Signature by Mark

17. "Signature" or "subscription" includes mark when the signer or subscriber cannot write, such signer's or subscriber's name being written near the mark by a witness who writes his own name near the signer's or subscriber's name; but a signature or subscription by mark can be acknowledged or can serve as a signature or subscription to a sworn statement only when two witnesses so sign their own names thereto."
