In the 1960s the NYSE Department of Stock List employed 72 people and covered around 1250 companies. Employees are divided into industries and each would cover 100 to 120 companies. The Department is tasked with educational functions of those listed companies regarding disclosure of material events such as mergers. They would also review trading activity and price fluctuations of those stocks and look for unusual activity. The Department even reviewed newspapers everyday and refers relevant clippings to the assigned listing agent. Listing agents had the ability to halt trading should an announcement be required by a company.

This solid, hefty hunk of metal, is a printing plate was from the Department of Stock List at the New York Stock Exchange during the tenure of Director Phillip West who served until 1971. Merles Wick, Associate Director at the time of this plate, was named to the top post of Director of NYSE Department of Stock List in 1971 after Phillip West retired after 47 years with the New York Stock Exchange. This printing plate most likely would have been used for department letterhead or something similar. One-of-a-kind piece
