Dated 1994; American Bank Note Company

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.
