Ford Motor Company going public in 1956...
Item # 691408
January 17, 1956
THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, Jan. 17, 1956
* Ford Motor Company going public (eve)
* New York Stock Market Exchange
The top of the front page has a six column heading: "Ford Reveals Stock Price Today" with subheads: "Secret Price Set On Ford Stock" "Announcement Due Today; Shares Go on Sale Wednesday" (see) Coverage on the Ford Motor Company going public the following day on the New York Stock Exchange. Terrific to have in a Detroit publication, the home of the automotive industry. Extremely rare as such.
Complete with 24 pages, light toning at the margins, tape mend within the masthead slightly affects the heading (see), lightly inked in the first 2 letters of "Reveals", small binding holes along the spine, generally good.
