Description
 
Tenneco Inc. was originally Tennessee Gas Transmission Company Company in 1943 which built a natural gas pipeline from Texas to West Virginia. The company eventually started buying failing business and working to turn them around. In 1967 it bought Walker Inc., a manufacture of exhaust and muffler pipes, in the 1970's it bought JI Case Now known as Case Corp. The company began spinning off it's holdings in the 1990's and today is primarily a manufacture of original and aftermarket auto parts. Tenneco is a Fortune 500 Company and is listed on the NYSE.

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.
