Description
 
National Health Laboratories’ origin began in 1978 as National Health Laboratories Incorporated.  Through mergers, acquisitions, financial difficulties, scandals and lawsuits the company has morphed into Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings.  In 1994 National Health Laboratories Inc. reorganized as a holding company, National Health Laboratories Holdings.  In 1995 the company merged with Roche Biomedical Laboratories, Inc to form Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings.

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.
