COMPLETE WRITTEN INSTRUMENT

"Complete written instrument" means a written instrument which purports to be a genuine written instrument fully drawn with respect to every essential feature thereof.  An endorsement, attestation, acknowledgment or other similar signature or statement is deemed both a complete written instrument in itself and a part of the main instrument in which it is contained or to which it attaches.
