Description Extended Information
Owens-Illinois, Inc. (NYSE: OI) was founded in 1903 as Owens Bottle Machine Co. It currently manufacturers glass bottle containers and after acquiring BSN Glasspack in 2004 is considered the largest manufacturer of glass containers in North America, South America, Asia-Pacific and Europe. In 2005, the company changed its trade name to O-I because it felt it would identify more with its global operations.

Added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average August 9, 1976.

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.
