Description Extended Information
Before Google took over the world there was Netscape. Netscape was the first dominant web browser with an approximate 90% market share before losing out to Internet Explorer. Their stock was traded only a short time (making their stock certificates rare) before being purchased by AOL. Prior to its acquisition, Netscape used its technology and created the Mozilla Organization which now runs the Firefox Web Browser. AOL discontinued the Netscape brand in 2011.

This rare Netscape Specimen Stock Certificate is a rare find and a piece of internet history.

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.
