State designations in third edition

In the next edition, I will include state designations with company names. In the first and second editions, I combined state designations with certificate descriptions. Because of space limitations, I included only one state. The new change will allow several improvements: 1) It will allow me to include multiple state names; 2) It will save space because states will not need to be repeated several times; 3) It will allow collectors to spot companies from their main states of interest.
