Description
 
This rare Levi Strauss Specimen Stock Certificate was printed in 1982 and features founder, Levi Strauss in the vignette.

Levi Strauss & Co was founded in San Francisco in 1853 by Levi Strauss and would be come one of the would most recognized brands. The company started as modest trading and dry goods company. After a tailor kept buying denim cloth from Levi Straus, he approached Strauss to partner with him and patent the idea of using copper rivets to reinforce seams. The first pair of of Levis 501 Jeans were produced in the 1890s.

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.
