many

You can find o-sensei's signature's in many of John Stevense's books.

He used to sign his calligraphies with a pen-name :"Tsunemori".

Please see attached file.

The signature is at the bottom of each.

He used to sign a lot of ways, even just signing "Morihei" on occasion (if I recall correctly).

Ze'ev gave you the best pointer, one of John Steven's books "The Essence of Aikido" I think, has a whole section showing O Sensei's calligraphy over the years, clearly showing his signature and commenting on the different signings.

love, light, joy and laughter

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
