These certificates make a great reminder to future generations
Fairfax, Virginia (PRWEB) October 17, 2016
Scripophily.com®, the Internet’s largest buyer and seller of collectible stock and bond certificates, is offering original stock certificates from companies involved in scandals, bankruptcies, and frauds. Collectors like to acquire these certificates because they remind them of the downside of investing in the stock market. Also, many times these certificates are framed and hung in an office which and makes a great conversation piece.
Some of the certificates offered by Scripophily.com include Worldcom, Global Crossing, Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, XO Communications Continental Illinois Corporation, Countrywide, Enron Corporation, Trump Taj Mahal Funding, Inc., United States Radium, Washington Mutual, Equity Funding, Washington Washington Public Power Supply System Bond ( WPPSS aka Whoops ), Fast Eddie, and many others
According to Bob Kerstein, Founder of Scripophily.com, "Each certificate is a different piece of history. It describes the company, the type of instrument (usually stock or bond), the year issued, printed signatures of officers and much more." "They also make a great reminder to hand down to future generations," Kerstein added.
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.
