More information on Campbell's history:
Campbell Soup Company, also known as Campbell's, is a well-known American producer of canned soups and related products. Campbell's products are sold in 120 countries around the world. It is headquartered in Camden, New Jersey.

History
Campbell's was founded in 1869 by Joseph A. Campbell and Abraham Anderson, an icebox manufacturer. The company was originally called the "Joseph A. Campbell Preserve Company" and produced canned tomatoes, vegetables, jellies, soups, condiments, and minced meats.

By 1896, Anderson left the partnership, leaving Campbell to reorganize and form a new company, Joseph Campbell & Co. In 1897, a nephew of one of the new Campbell partners, Dr. John T. Dorrance, began working for the company at a wage of $7.50 a week.[citation needed] Dorrance, a gifted chemist with degrees from MIT and Göttingen University, Germany, developed a commercially viable method for condensing soup by halving the quantity of its heaviest ingredient: water.

In 1898, Herberton Williams, a Campbell's executive, convinced the company to adopt a cherry red and bright white color scheme, because he was taken by the crisp colors of the Cornell University football team's uniforms. To this day, the layout of the can, with its red and white design and the metallic gold medal seal from the 1900 Paris Exhibition, has changed very little.
Entrance to Campbell Soup headquarters in Camden

Campbell Soup became one of the largest food companies in the world under the leadership of William Beverly Murphy. He was elected executive vice president of Campbell Soup in 1949 and was president and CEO from 1953 to 1972. While at Campbell's Soup Company, he took the corporation public and increased its brand portfolio to include Pepperidge Farm's breads, cookies, and crackers, Franco-American's gravies and pastas, V8 vegetable juices, Swanson broths, and Godiva's chocolates.

Campbell Soup invested heavily in advertising since its inception, and many of its promotional campaigns have proven value in the Americana collectible advertising market. Perhaps best known are the "Campbell Kids" who represented the recognizable soup. Ronald Reagan was a spokesman for V8 when it was first introduced. In addition to collectible advertising, the company has also had notable commercial sponsorships. Among these was The Campbell Playhouse, which had previously been Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre On The Air. Campbell's took over as sponsor of the radio theater program in December 1938.

In the UK and Ireland, Campbell Soup was rebranded as Batchelors Condensed Soup (UK) and Erin (Ireland) in March 2008, when the license to use the brand name expired. Premier Foods, St. Albans, Hertfordshire bought the Campbell Soup Company in the UK and Ireland, for £450m ($830m) in 2006, but was licensed to use the brand only until 2008. Under this agreement the US-based Campbell Soup Company will continue to produce Campbell's Condensed Soup but cannot sell the product in the UK for a further 5 years. ~Wikipedia





Old Stock Yard Policies and FAQs

Shipping and Handling Charges:
$2.99 for one certificate to the U.S.
$5.99 for one certificate to the rest of the world

Additional, combined certificate purchases ship for free!

Shipping Method and Timing:
Certificates are carefully packaged in poly bags and rigid envelopes to protect them during shipment. Items are sent via U.S.P.S. – usually first class, but occasionally priority or parcel post. Most items will be mailed within 48 hours of payment.  

Payment Method:
In accordance with eBay policy, my listings are setup to accept Paypal payments. Sellers are allowed to accept other forms of payment only if the buyer requests another payment method – so if you prefer to pay using a method other than Paypal, please let me know.

Return Policy:
Items can be returned for any reason within 15 days of purchase. A full refund will be issued upon receipt of the return if the item is the same condition it was in upon delivery.

FAQs:
Are you your certificates authentic or copies?
Everything I sell is original and authentic. I do not sell copies or reproductions.

Is the certificate pictured the exact one I will receive?
Usually, yes. Occasionally, I do list certificates of the same type without rescanning. In this case, the certificate you receive will be virtually identical (same color, size, vignette, etc.) to the one pictured. Again, if you ever receive anything from me you are not 100% pleased with, you can return it for a full refund.

What is the best way to store, protect, and display my certificate collection?
The best thing, by far, that I have come across for storing certificates are profolios and sleeves made by Itoya. You can purchase them in my eBay store. I have several sizes available.

Do the certificates you sell have financial value?
No, these certificates are sold as collectibles only; although they are authentic, they no longer hold financial value.
