Founded in 1969 to provide a secure, friendly, and affordable camping experience, Thousand Trails today offers a premium outdoors destination to 112,000 members (as of June 30, 2002) through a system of 59 membership-based camping preserves located in 17 states and British Columbia, Canada. Thousand Trails is one of the nation's largest owners and operators of membership-based campgrounds. Thousand Trails also provides a reciprocal use program for members of 280 recreational facilities and manages 240 public campgrounds for the US Forest Service.

Members using the campgrounds may bring their own recreational vehicles, tents, or other sleeping equipment, or rent travel trailers or cabins located at the campgrounds or visit for the day. The campgrounds feature campsites with electrical, water, and, in some cases, sewer connections for RVs, restroom and shower facilities, rental trailers or cabins, and other recreational amenities. At each campground, a manager and staff provide security, maintenance, and recreational programs that vary by location.

About Specimens

Specimen Certificates are actual certificates that have never been issued. They were usually kept by the printers in their permanent archives as their only example of a particular certificate. Sometimes you will see a hand stamp on the certificate that says "Do not remove from file".

Specimens were also used to show prospective clients different types of certificate designs that were available. Specimen certificates are usually much scarcer than issued certificates. In fact, many times they are the only way to get a certificate for a particular company because the issued certificates were redeemed and destroyed. In a few instances, Specimen certificates we made for a company but were never used because a different design was chosen by the company.

These certificates are normally stamped "Specimen" or they have small holes spelling the word specimen. Most of the time they don't have a serial number, or they have a serial number of 00000. This is an exciting sector of the hobby that grown in popularity and realized nice appreciation in value over the past several years.
