Certificate Vignette

Intel, by far the world's #1 maker of chips, commands about four-fifths of the PC microprocessor market. Even though archrival AMD has eaten into that market share, and while some of its diversification efforts have stalled, Intel still makes several times as much from chips as do any of its rivals. Most computer makers use Intel processors; Dell is its largest customer (14% of sales). Intel also makes flash memories (it's #1 there, too) and chips for many networking and industrial applications. Faced with a stagnating PC market, Intel is focusing efforts on communications chips and foreign markets as it strives for future growth.

Intel and its transfer agent, Computer- share Investor Services, said that as of August 1, 2005 – the date Delaware’s new law took effect – the company began issuing all new shares electronically through DRS. Shareholders who purchase Intel stock will receive a statement of electronic ownership rather than paper certificates that have to be placed in safekeeping. DTCC’s depository, which manages DRS for all markets, notified its bank and broker/dealer customers that the transfer of ownership on all Intel shares would result in the issuance of DRS statements, not paper certificates.

About Specimen Certificates

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 were 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 has grown in popularity over the past several years.
