Description
 
This Mobil Corp Specimen Bond Certificate was printed in 1977 and was for $5000 due in 2001 at 8 1/2%. It's a gorgeous certificate featuring their famous Pegasus mascot. Their red wing horse can be found all over the world. This mascot dates back to the 1930s.

Mobil dates its history back to 1870 as a direct descendant of the Standard Oil Monopoly of John D. Rockefeller. They were previously known as the Standard Oil Company of New York or Socony after the breakup of Standard Oil in 1911. They merged with the Vacuum Oil Company in the '30s where the name Mobil was originated. In 1963 they officially became Mobil Corporation. Mobil merged with Exxon in 1999 and is now the larges oil and gas company in the world.

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.
