Description Extended Information
This First Colony Corp. Specimen Stock Certificate in adorn with old time sail powered ships and is dated March 9th, 1993. First Colony Corporation was the holding company for First Colony Life. First Colony was founded in 1955 in Lynchburg Virginia, it was bought by GE Capital in 1996 and then merged into Genworth Life and Annuity in 2007. It is a great piece for any collector looking for the art of stock certificates.

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.
