9.12 Validity of instrument with facsimile signature.

Any check, draft, warrant, voucher, or other instrument for the payment of money bearing a duly adopted facsimile signature as authorized by section 9.11 of the Revised Code, even though such facsimile signature was affixed without the authority or knowledge of the person whose signature it purports to be, is as valid as if the genuine manual signature of such person were affixed thereto as to any depository, bank, or other person which gave value for such instrument in good faith.
