I believe that John is correct with his assumption about the ink pen. I believe that this was signed with a fountain pen and the ink beaded on the gloss of the paper. A lot of the original signature can be restored simply by copying the signature to another level and sharpening it. Here is a quick down and dirty to show you what I mean.

With Mary Ellen's blue eyes I had to edit her as a

dark blonde.

The distracting background, smudges, discolorations and dirt was the most distracting element that demanded attention.
