Certificate Vignette The Novelty Rubber Company was an American manufacturing firm founded by Nicholas Williamson in 1853 in Beacon Falls, Connecticut, moving to New Brunswick, New Jersey where it incorporated in 1855 and finally closed in the 1886. The Novelty Rubber Company was one of the earliest companies to introduce certain hard rubber goods of the Goodyear patents. The Rubber business was then in its infancy, and through the skillful management of Mr. Williamson and his associates, it became one of the largest concerns in this line in the United States, its annual output reaching several hundred thousand dollars. Mr. Williamson was President of the company for many years, until his death. 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.
