This rare F.W. Woolworth Co Specimen Note Certificate was printed in 1941 and paid 2 1/2% due in 1955. Woolworth's was the original American five and dime store started in 1878. It would become one the most successful retail stores in the U.S. and the face of American retail. There growth would also lead to their downfall unable to compete with the likes of Walmart. In 1997 they were replaced by Walmart in the Dow Jones. In 2001, after selling off and closing most of their retail locations, they changed their name to Foot Locker, Inc. which they started in 1974.

Added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average August 31, 1925.

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.
