Description Extended Information
This Specimen President Riverboat Casinos stock certificate was printed in 1992. The President steamboat was built in 1924 and was originally called the Cincinnati. She was delared a National Historic Landmark in 1989 and was last sidewheel steamboat in the US. This designation as a Landmark was later revoked. The President was converted to a Casino and opened in Davenport, Iowa in 1991. The President Riverboat Casino was the second riverboat casino in the US with the first opening just 30 minutes prior.

The President was retired from service in 1999. President Casinos has operated other casinos as well in Biloxi, Tunica, and St. Louis. They declared bankruptcy in 2009.

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.
