Description Extended Information
This rare version of Harrah's Specimen Stock Certificate was printed in 1973. Harrah's was founded in Reno, Nevada by Bill Harrah with it's history dating back to 1937 with a small bingo parlor. The expanded into Lake Tahoe and would eventually go public in 1971 on the AMEX and then the NYSE in 1973 (the year of this specimen). They were the first Casino listed on the NYSE. Harrah's expanded in the Las Vegas and in 2005 they purchased Caesar's Entertainment.

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.
