The specimen is proof of your trademark being used in commerce in the US and should display real-life evidence of it. For physical goods, this could be:

  • a photograph of the actual goods bearing the mark;
  • an actual container, packaging, tag, or label for the goods bearing the mark;
  • a webpage submitted as a display associated with the goods, but it must show the mark in association with a picture or textual description of the goods and include information necessary for ordering the goods.
