Description
 
First Banks America, Inc. was acquired by First Banks, Inc in 2002. First Banks Inc. was founded in 1910 and is based in Clayton, Missouri.  Prior to the acquisition, the company operated through its subsidiaries First Bank & Trust, The San Francisco Company, and Bank of San Francisco.

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.
