Description Extended Information
This rare Royal Crown Companies specimen stock certificate is from 1978 and in mint condition. RC Cola (Royal Crown) was developed in 1905 by Claud Hatcher. Hatcher was a pharmacist who owned a grocery store in Georgia. To keep his profits higher, he refused to by syrup from Coca-Cola and decided to develop his own syrup. The first product he produced was Royal Crown Ginger Ale in 1905 and later Strawberry and Root Beer. The first cola was released in the 1930s. Great piece for the soft drink collectors.

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.
