Description Extended Information
This very rare U.S. Steel Specimen Bond Certificate was from 1903. It was for $1000 and paid 5%. This bond was issued just two years after United State Steel Corp was founded in 1901, when J.P. Morgan combined Andrew Carnegie's Carnegie Steel with Federal Steel and National Steel. In its first years operation, they supplied almost 2/3 of the steel in the United States.

Add to the Dow Jones Industrial Average April 1, 1901.

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.
