Undedicated

This refers to the signature on a cover or photograph. An “undedicated” signature is a straight-forward autograph where someone signs their name and nothing else. A “dedicated” signature in comparison is where the signer has personalised their autograph by dedicating it to someone (eg. “To Sue, with best wishes”). As a rule, although a dedicated signature is extra special to the person mentioned in the dedication, it is less valuable in the future than an undedicated signature.
