Description
 
This rare Amoco Corporation Specimen Stock Certificate was printed in 1988 and features a woman with an oil refinery, old card and farmer plowing the fields in the background. Amoco was founded in 1889 in Indiana as the Standard Oil company of Indiana until 1985. When the Standard Oil monopoly was broken up, they became a separate company in 1911. In 1985 they became Amoco.

They later merged with BP in 1998 and the Amaco brand came back to prominence in 2017 in the U.S.

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.
