This Crown Cork & Seal Company Specimen Stock Certificate is from the the 1950s. William Painter invented the crown bottle cap for carbonated drinks in 1891 and founded the Crown Cork and Seal Company shortly after in Baltimore. By the 1930s Crown provided more than half the worlds bottle caps. They are now known as Crown Holdings and are a Fortune 500 company today with over $11 billion in annual revenue and over 30,000 employees worldwide.

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.
