Description Extended Information
This rare Natomas Company specimen stock certificate was printed in 1977. The Natomas Company's history dates back to 1906 when Robert Hanford founded the Natomas Development Company and also purchased the Natomas Vineyard Company in California. They ran dredging, mining, and gravel crushing operations looking for gold. They would change their name to the Natomas Company of California during WWII after missing some bond payments. Then on November 13th, 1928 they reorganized as the Natomas Company. The Diamond Shamrock Corp purchased Natomas in the 1980s and the name was discontinued.

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.
