Description Extended Information
The Chocolate Laxative, Ex-Lax, was invented in 1906 by Max Kiss. Kiss came to the U.S. from Hungary penniless and would become a pharmacist graduating from Columbia. It got its name from "Excellent Laxative" and was revolutionary for its time. Ex-Lax, Inc. would become the world's largest laxative maker. Estimate age 1930s-50s.

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.
