Certificate Vignette Solutia was founded in St. Louis in 1901 as Monsanto Company which became one of the world's leading chemical companies by the 1960s. Solutia was created as an independent company on September 1, 1997, after Monsanto shareholders approved the spin-off of the company's chemical businesses. Solutia has more than $3 billion in annual sales, $4 billion in assets and more than 9,000 employees located at 35 manufacturing sites throughout 30 countries.

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.
