Beautifully engraved SPECIMEN certificate from the eFunds Corporation. This historic document was printed by the American Bank Note Company and has an
ornate border around it. This item has the printed signatures of the Company's Officers.
eFunds' initial public offering took place in June 2000 on the Nasdaq national market. Following the IPO, eFunds' separation from Deluxe Corporation (NYSE: DLX) was completed in December 2000.
Deluxe Corporation announced the formation of eFunds in April 1999, bringing together some of the strongest players in risk management and electronic transaction processing services that had operated as distinct businesses within Deluxe. In January 2000, iDLX Technology Partners - another Deluxe unit - was combined with eFunds to add professional services and business process outsourcing capabilities to the new business.
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.
