An unauthorized signature placed on a security certificate before or in the course of issue is ineffective, but the signature is effective in favor of a purchaser for value of the certificated security if the purchaser is without notice of the lack of authority and the signing has been done by

(2) an employee of the issuer, or of a person listed in (1) of this section, entrusted with responsible handling of the security certificate.
