Description Extended Information
This rare Standard Oil Specimen Stock Certificate is from one of the most recognizable companies in the world. Standard Oil was founded in 1870 by John D. Rockefeller. Standard Oil was the focus of the anti-trust Supreme Court decision of 1911.

This specimen was printed in 1969 for 100 shares.

Added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average February 6, 1924.

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.
