Description Extended Information
McAfee Associates was founded in 1987 by John McAfee until he resigned in 1994. McAfee was the first commercially available antivirus software. McAfee ran for the Libertarian Party nomination for the President of the United States in 2016 and 2020. He was later charged in Spain for tax evasion and also faced charges by the SEC. He contends taxes are illegal. His bizarre and controversial life was depicted in the Showtime Networks Documentary Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee. He was arrested in Spain in 2020 for U.S. tax evasion. After Spain approved his extradition to the U.S., he was found dead in his prison cell of an apparent suicide.

In 1997 McAfee Associates merged with Network General to form Network Associates. McAfee.com Corporation was a majority-own subsidiary of Network Associates which was later reacquired in a tender offer. The company was purchased by Intel in 2011 and was later spun off and was listed on the NASDAQ in an IPO in 2020.

This rare McAfee.com Specimen Stock Certificate was from late 90s.

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.
