Description Extended Information
This First Union Corp Specimen Stock Certificate was printed in 2000. Dating back to 1781, First Union Corporation was a banking firm specializing commercial and retail banking services. The company later merged with Wachovia in April 2001. Wachovia was acquired by Wells Fargo by a Government Forced sale in December 2001, in order to avoid failure of Wachovia.

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.
