Description Extended Information
This rare Lazy Boy Chair Company Stock Certificate production proof from the United States Banknote Company includes the general stock certificate layout with notes indicating changes and alterations and the plastic overlay of the legal language and details. This rare file includes the original 8 x 10 photo of founders E.M Knabusch and E.J. Shoemaker that was ultimately used for the vignette. The photo also shows them standing next to their original wood-slat porch chair that started it all.

This La-Z-Boy Chair Company production piece is rare and a true one-of-one. These proofs rarely make it into the public.

La-Z-Boy Chair Company was founded in 1927 in Monroe, Michigan. At their peak they had over 13,000 employees.

Stock Certificate Production Proofs / Mock-ups are the design and legal blue print for the stock certificate issue. Proofs were used by the banknote company that printed the stock certificates and executives at the company for review and editing. These proofs helped to design the layout and art on the stock certificate and to assure that all the legal language and design elements were included. Many of these are several pages with clear plastic transparency sheets to allow for notes and directions on subsequent layers. Proofs sometimes have the vignettes and photos taped in place and may even have the original photos included separately. Stock Certificate Mock-ups were always a work in progress so they were handled often and show the wear and tear of the process. These are always truly one-of-ones making each exceedingly rare and don't often make it to the public.
