Description Extended Information
This Morton International specimen stock certificate was printed in 1995. Morton International was incorporated in 1910 as the Morton Salt Company. The company was founded in Chicago IL to produce and distribute salt across the Midwest. Morton Salt may be most famous for it "Morton Salt Girl" logo featuring a girl walking in the rain with an open umbrella which was first seen in a 1914 ad campaign. The The company was acquired by Rohm & Hass and was sold in 2009 to Germany’s K&S.

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.
