Beautifully engraved historic Certificate from the Enron Corporation . This historic document was printed by the American Banknote Company and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an oil man sitting in front of a world globe and an oil field. This item has the printed signatures of the company’s officers including Kenneth L. Lay as Chariman of the Board and Corporate Secretary. Lay resigned as chairman and CEO of Enron under pressure from bankruptcy creditors. Enron Certificates with Kenneth Lay’s printed signature are becoming very hard to find.
While supplies last, we thought it would appropriate to include a certificate from the Texas Reading Club with the theme “Invent the Future”. There must have been a few people at Enron’s headquarters in Houston, Texas who received this certificate since they not only invented the future, but they also invented the past as demonstrated in their reported financial results. This certificate was given out to students as an achievement award and has the printed signature of George Bush when he was Governor of the State of Texas. The certificate has a colorful scene on the moon with 3 spacemen, a rocket and the lunar rover. The message along the top says “Invent the Future! Read!”
