Description Extended Information
This Mesa Petroleum Co Specimen Stock Certificate features T. Boone Pickens Jr. as President and was printed in 1984. T. Boone Pickens was a famous American businessman who was the Chairman of the BP Capital Management Hedge Fund. Pickens worked for Phillips Petroleum after College until 1954 after which he founded Mesa Petroleum in 1956. Mesa was one of the largest independent oil producers in the U.S. In 1986 Mesa was sold to Richard Rainwater and Pickens was subsequently removed from the company he founded.

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.
