Description Extended Information
This Peoples Gas Company specimen stock certificate was printed in 1977. Founded in 1850, the Peoples Gas Company provided the city of Chicago natural gas to light its streets. They became the first utility in Chicago. In 1931 Chicago was connected with Texas through a 980 mile natural gas pipeline that was co-owned by Peoples Gas Company. Specimen stock certificate.

Added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average March 24, 1898.

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.
