Description Extended Information
This rare REO Motor Car Company Specimen Proof Certificate was from the 1920s. It has "changes have been made" stamped on the right. Uneven margins and marked cancelled. REO was founded in Lansing, Michigan in 1905 by Ransom E. Olds (REO). Olds was also the founder of Oldsmobile which he left to form REO. They produced cars and trucks such as the Flying Cloud. Royale, and of course, the REO Speed Wagon. The Rock band's name was taken from the REO Speed Wagon.

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.
