In order to be fair to you - the customer - the scan that you see is the certificate that you will get. Although I have more than one on some of the certificates I will just put up a new picture for the next one. That way you won't have to worry about any tears, imperfections, and so forth that may be on a certificate that you haven't seen.

Click on the name to see the picture! If the scan looks like some of the certificate has been cut off it is probably because it was too large for the scanner. Any tears, imperfections, etc. should be mentioned in the description. If you want a bigger / better scan send me an e-mail and I will send one to you!

Cancellation holes show as black in many of the scans due

to the backing used in scanning in order to get a better image.

Lincoln Motor Company Temporary certificate for Class A shares issued on 15 December 1920 with no vignette. Certificate for 100 common shares, green on white paper with green underprint. Signed by Wilfred C. Leland as vice president and William T. Nash as secretary. (In the 1920's the Lelands, while working for General Motors, allegedly disagreed with William C. Durant's reluctance to convert the Cadillac plant to World War I aircraft engine production. The Lelands walked out and, with the help of a government contract to build aircraft engines and a $10,000,000 advance, they organized Lincoln Motors. Unfortunately the war ended prematurely, leaving the company with 6,000 employees and a mountain of debt, so they decided to build a car to compete with Cadillac. The new Lincoln was well-engineered but lacked the styling and refinement of the Cadillac and production was delayed. In the end, after four months in the new company, they were forced to sell out to Henry Ford.) (Because of its size full borders and margins are not shown.) (More than one available) 55.00
