This Gannett Co specimen stock certificate was printed in 1988. Gannett is the largest newspaper publisher in the United States. Some of its publications include the USA Today and many local and regionals such as the Detroit Free Press, The Tennessean, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The Indianapolis Star, and many more.

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.
