We are proud of our long history of providing reliable, high quality old stock research service at a reasonable cost.

Old Company Research Service (OldCompany.com) is celebrating 136 years of continuous old stock and bond research services. The old company and securities research service provides investigative analysis for financial and accounting firms, professionals, attorneys, investors, estates and trusts in cases of questioned securities and lost company identities. The research investigations will probe into the corporate history, capital changes, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, legal proceedings, regulatory filings, and analysis of companies to assess the disposition of financial holdings.

In addition to the potential redeemable value sought by investors, Scripophily.com offers insight into the secondary historical finance market by assessing any possible collectible value in the hobby of Scripophily. Scripophily is the hobby of collecting authentic old stock and bond certificates.

In 2011, Scripophily.com, the parent company of Old Company Research Service, acquired the old stock & bond business research service correspondence, archives and copyrights from Herzog & Co., Inc. (formally R.M. Smythe Old Stock Research Services). The acquisition included rights to all reference material published by the Marvyn Scudders Manuals, the Robert D. Fisher Manuals, and Herzog & Co., Inc. as well as all correspondence from the R.M. Smythe Special Library used in the Smythe’s Obsolete Research activities which began in 1880.

Since the acquisition, we have digitized the archives, repositories and resources into our proprietary information management systems. The data merger has ensured our continual commitment to quality and value with efficient access to this previously hard to recover information.

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. Due to the computer age, more and more stock and bonds are issued electronically which means fewer paper certificates are being issued. As a result, demand for paper certificates is increasing while supply is decreasing.
