Eastman Kodak Company's history dates back to 1881 with the founding of the Eastman Dry Plate Company which sold dry plates for cameras. They changed their name to the Eastman Dry Plate and Film Company in 1884 and produced the first roll of film that would hold multiple camera exposures. There were renamed Eastman Kodak in 1892. While the modern age has been difficult, filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2012, they remain one of the premier film, printing and camera companies.

This rare Kodak Specimen Bond Certificate was printed in 1988.

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.
