1925. Odd Shares. Voting Trust Certificate For Stock Subject to Option. Green border and underprint. Specimen, POC's. Trustees are Anthony H.G.Fokker, Joseph Porter and Frank R.Ford. Fokker was Dutch and was very active helping the Germans in WW I with their aviation needs. In 1923, Anthony Fokker moved to the United States, where he established an American branch of his company, the Atlantic Aircraft Corporation, in 1927 being renamed Fokker Aircraft Corporation of America. In the 1920s, Fokker entered its glory years, becoming the world's largest aircraft manufacturer by late 1920s. In 1930 this company merged with General Motors Corporation and the company's new name would be General Aviation Manufacturing Corporation (which in turn merged with North American Aviation and was divested by GM in 1948). A year later, discontented at being totally subordinate to GM management, Fokker resigned.
