Pacific Leisure Enterprises stock certificate, 1970, issued uncancelled, out of business, so this cert is obviously sold as a collectible.
Large unique underprinted vignette of the Hawaiian Islands printed in green ink with a blue ink border
A nice striking certificate in excellent condition; I would rate this Very Fine +++, never been folded. Quality printing by Security Columbian Bank Note. The company was founded in 1969, went out of business in the 1970's. Hawaiina realted stock certs are rare, and a Hawaiian Island vignette is extremely rare.
