Beautifully engraved SPECIMEN certificate from the Noiseless Typewriter Company. This historic document was printed by the Franklin - Lee Banknote Company and has an ornate border around it. The Noiseless Typewriter Company was founded in 1912. As to its purported "noiselessness", it wasn't actually as silent as its name may suggest, but at least it did not make as much noise as a conventional typewriter, which was made possible by a short-stroke flexible type-bar mechanism. In 1924, the Noiseless company was taken over by Remington. 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.
