Not your typical Specimen

I thought this is interesting about this bond. It is a beautiful piece engraved by the Hamilton Bank Note Company of New York. At first glance it looks like a specimen. It is not. It seems the Hamilton Bank Note Co. marked their proofs as specimens. It is made from India Paper (which is Chinese not Indian) backed by thick card stock. I would be interested to know of other examples.
