Dated 1989 - Marked approved; American Bank Note Company

In 1984 NYNEX was spun off of AT&T as part of the antitrust case and was one of the original "Baby Bells". NYNEX stands for New York New England, it was the Baby Bell that serviced those areas. NYNEX merged with Bell Atlantic in 1997 and is now part of Verizon.

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.
