Description
 
National Gypsum Company was founded in 1925, but didn’t acquire it’s name until 1993.  At this time the company was changing their focus and operations.  In 1995 National Gypsum Company was taken private.  

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.
