overdue bill
a bill of exchange still in circulation beyond the date specified for payment for an unreasonable length of time. Where an overdue bill is sought to be negotiated, such negotiation can only be effected subject to any defect in title affecting the bill at its maturity; after that no person who acquires it can acquire or give a better title than that which the transferor had.
