Description
 
This Burlington Northern Railroad specimen stock certificate was printed in 1983. It is for 5 1/2% preferred stock. The Burlington Northern Railroad was formed in 1970s after the merger with the Great Northern Railway, the Northern Pacific Railway, the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad.

In 1996, after the purchase of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway they became the BNSF Railway which was purchased by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway in 2009.

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.
