HUNTER Biden's signature allegedly appears on the receipt from the laptop repair shop where he is claimed to have dropped off the computer at the center of the emails, crack and sex scandal.
Documents show a signature of which appears to read "RHB" - Robert Hunter Biden - which shares some similarities to other publicly available versions of his scrawl.

The authenticity of the signature has not been proven as the scandal continues to swirl around Hunter and his dad, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden.
It emerged last week that the copy of a hard drive containing emails allegedly proving Hunter had introduced Joe to a Ukrainian oil exec had been handed to Donald Trump ally Rudy Giuliani.
Files were then handed to The New York Post, who also reported the hard drive contained a 12-mintue video of Hunter smoking crack while engaged in a sex act and other sexually explicit photos.
Emails also contained details of Hunter's other business dealings as it appeared to show him trying to cash-in on his dad's position as Vice President under Barack Obama.
Both Bidens have denied any wrongdoing, and Joe's campaign denied the alleged meeting with Burisma boss Vadym Pozharskyi ever occurred.
A receipt from The Mac Shop in Wilmington appears to show Biden's signature signing off the $85 repair, reports Fox News.
The paperwork also notes Biden's name in the "bill to" section.
Other documents show paperwork of the FBI's dealings with shop owner John Paul MacIsaac, and show he received a subpoena to testify before the US District Court in Delaware on December 9.
Isaac, 44, a Trump supporter, has said he turned over the laptop to the feds while also handing a copy of the files to Giuliani.
According to the outlet, the senate is working with the repairman to verify the documents.
Trump has capitalized on the email scandal, using it to brand Biden "corrupt" and claiming his rival - who is ahead in the national polls - was the head of a "crime family" and should be locked up.

Questions have been asked over the authenticity of the contents of the laptop and how they were obtained, with some suggesting the hand of Russia.
FBI officials are now reported to be probing whether the emails are linked to a foreign intelligence operation, reports NBC.
And then The Washington Post reported the White House was warned that Giuliani was being used to "feed Russian misinformation" to the President.
While The New York Times reported US intelligence analysts warned they had picked up Russian chatter about stolen Burisma emails which would be released as an "October surprise".
However, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, a Trump appointee, has said the laptop is "not part of some Russian disinformation campaign" following allegations from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
Speaking on Fox show Mornings with Maria, he said: "It's funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence."
He continued: "Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. "
Ratcliffe added claims Biden's emails were linked to Russian agents were "simply not true".

Ratcliffe also confirmed that Hunter's laptop has been in possession of the FBI.
"Without commenting on any investigation that they may or may not have, their investigation is not centered around Russian disinformation and the IC is not playing any role with respect to that," he said.
"The intelligence community has not been involved in Hunter Biden’s laptop."
Last week, The Post published emails that purported to show Hunter being encouraged to use his influence to benefit Burisma.
He had been employed by the firm in 2014 and was handed a salary of $50,000-a-month, despite not having any prior experience.
Republicans have long questioned whether Hunter got the gas job to guarantee the Burisma access to his dad Joe, who was serving as VP at the time under Barack Obama.
The leaked emails appeared to show that on at least one occasion Hunter arranged a meeting between himself, Joe and Burisma boss Vadym Pozharskyi.
