This paper addresses the problem of the enhancement of images of handwritten bank cheques in order to facilitate their automatic processing by machine.

The removal of such stamp imprints is essential if satisfactory performance in legal and courtesy amount recognition is to be achieved by the subsequent handwritten character recognition software
