Description Extended Information
This Transamerica Corporation specimen stock certificate was printed in 1992. Transamerica's history dates back to 1928 when Bank of America founder A.P. Giannini formed Trans-America in San Francisco as a holding company which owned Bank of America, Bank of Italy and several other large banks as well as the purchase of Occidental Life in 1930. The expanded over years and holdings included United Artists (film company), Transamerica Airlines and even Budget Rent A Car. They were purchased by Aegon in 1999 and now mainly offers financial services and insurance.

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.
