How do you open a crossed cheque?

A crossed cheque can be 'opened' and cashed over the counter when the authorised signatories (right mandate) signs against the crossing. Signing against the crossing could be one of three things: 1. signing on top of the crossing, 2. signing in the crossing, 3. signing beneath the crossing. Note that the combination of mandate that originally signed the cheque must sign to 'open' it.
