Description Extended Information
This Columbia Pictures Specimen Bond was printed in 1969 and was for $5000. One of the leading film studios in the world, Columbia Pictures was founded in 1918 and adopted the name Columbia Pictures in 1924. They are now a division of Sony Pictures. Their logo is Columbia (the "Torch Lady") the female personification of the United States. Columbia's success began to really emerge in the 1930s-40 with the signing of Cary Grant and Rita Hayworth.

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.
