Description Extended Information
This Walgreen specimen stock certificate was printed in 1995. Walgreens Company was founded in Chicago Illinois in 1901 and is now one of the largest drugstore chains in the United States. During Prohibition in the 1920s, Walgreens soared. As alcohol was deemed illegal, prescription whiskey was sold by Walgreens. Walgreens also claims credit for the malted milkshake which was introduced and became popular in 1922. Walgreens was listed on the NYSE in 1934 and joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 2018. In 2014 they merged with Alliance Boots and are now known as Walgreens Boots Alliance.

This specimen stock cerificate is in excellent condition. 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.
