Stock Certificates

Stock Certificates

Long ago, the major companies printed certificates to show shares of ownership. As trading volume and speed of the transactions increased, they stopped printing them. When stocks or bonds are traded, they are typically held in the brokerage houses or other financial institutions, so you never have the opportunity to even see a stock certificate. As far as we know, they just are not printed anymore... Too bad, they are very interesting, and a piece of history.

Rare and Collectible... and Fun!

What we are offering is from a private collection. The condition is Good overall, the pictures we took are not so great, but you will just have to see them in real-life. Most are dated in the 1960-70's period, some are older or has special notes.

They were all once mounted, so there is masking tape on the back corners of many of them. The former names were whited-out. A few have minor tears, but overall they are very nice, printed on that heavy parchment-like paper. All of these are expired and worthless, with one exception...

Each certificate has a picture(s) and its brief item description. To order, you would type this into the order form. These are limited in quantity and offered on a first-come basis. We will try to keep this page updated, and we will let you know if an item has sold out.
