Such request shall be duly acknowledged or proved, or in the alternative the signature thereto shall be certified as to its genuineness by an officer of a bank or trust company located and authorized to do business in this state. Such note may again and from time to time be converted into a registered note and reconverted into a note payable to bearer in the manner provided in this paragraph.
