Description Extended Information
This Blount International Specimen Stock Certificate was printed in 1995. Blount International is a global manufacturer of forestry, lawn and garden, farm and agricultural products. They are the makers of Oregon Chainsaws among many other brands. Blount started in 1947 as the Oregon Saw Chain Company and was founded by Joe Cox in Portland, Oregon. The company was acquired in 1999 by Lehman Brothers Merchant Banking. At the time it was traded on the NYSE under the ticker symbol BLT but has since been taken private by American Securities and P2 Capital Partners.

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.
