Description
 
The Compaq Computer Corporation was once the largest supplier of personal computer systems in the world. Founded in 1982, Compaq was bought by Hewlett-Packard in 2002. This specimen stock certificate is in excellent condition and is truly a piece of information technology history.

Specimen stock certificates are certificates that were archived by printers and the company as perfect examples of the company’s stock issue. Specimen’s can be identified by their “specimen” stamp, stamped holes spelling “specimen”, or they are often issued with a serial number of a series of zeros. Often, they are also issued with no serial number at all. Specimens can also represent a design that was never issued. All of these attributes make the specimen stock certificate rarer than the issued version of the share. Many enthusiasts collect specimens as a whole new category of Scripophily.
