Description
 
This rare Smith Barney, Harris Upham & Co Specimen Stock Certificate was printed between 1975 and 1977. Harris, Upham & Co was a Wall Street brokerage house founded in 1895. In 1975 Smith Barney merged with Harris, Upham & Co to form Smith Barney, Harris Upham & Co. The Harris, Upham name was removed 2 years later. In 2009, Smith Barney merged with Morgan Stanley to form Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.

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.
