Old stock and bond certificates are extremely historic and fun to collect.
Washington DC (PRWEB) May 15, 2014
Scripophily.com®, the Internet’s largest buyer and seller of collectible stock and bond certificates, is offering original stock certificates from old mining companies from the United States and Canada. These certificates are from all types of mining operations including gold, silver, coal, titanium, uranium, radium, and others. They are from major gold and copper operations in California, Colorado, Michigan, Utah, Dakota Territory, Arizona Territory, and throughout Canada. We are offering both issued and unissued certificates.
Scripophily.com has recently added a collection of RARE Michigan stock certificates from the Wolverine Copper Mining Company issued in 1903, Michigan Copper Mining Company issued in 1901 and the Mohawk Mining Company issued in 1907. Both the Wolverine Copper Mining Company issued in 1903 and Michigan Copper Mining Company issued in 1901 certificates have not been seen before and only one example of the Mohawk Mining Company issued in 1907 has ever been seen prior to our discovery. "We are extremely excited about this recent find" says Bob Kerstein, CEO Scripophily.com.
Scripophily (scrip-ah-fil-ly) is the name of the hobby of collecting old stock and bond certificates. Certificate values range from a few dollars to more than $500,000 for the most unique and rare items. Tens of thousands of Scripophily buyers worldwide include casual collectors, corporate archives, business executives, museums and serious collectors.
Stock and bond certificates are collected because of their historical significance, beauty and artwork, autographs, notoriety, as well as many other factors. The supply of new certificates reaching the collector market has been substantially reduced due to changes in state laws and stock exchanges rules. Many companies are no longer required to issue paper stock and bond certificates, and only issue them in electronic form. This has increased the collectability of the existing paper certificates due to their scarcity.
Scripophily.com owns and operates OldCompany.com, which researches old stock and bond certificates to help determine possible redeemable value.
