Old paper stock and bond certificates make unique gifts that will last a lifetime. Stock and bond certificates are given as gifts because of their historical significance, beauty and artwork, autographs, notoriety, as well as many other factors. They look terrific framed on walls in homes, offices and dorm rooms. In addition, they continue to increase in popularity as Wall Street continues to dominate the news.
"Stock and Bond Certificates are a fun and affordable way to recognize and appreciate financial history" said Bob Kerstein, CEO of Scripophily.com. "Many dad's like the certificates because of the sentimental longing for the past or place with happy personal associations of the company's and industries who issued the certificates. Today's grads can learn from stock and bond certificates about the industrial and stock market booms and busts over time." Kerstein added.
Certificates are collected and given as gifts because of their historical significance, beauty and artwork, autographs, notoriety, as well as many other factors. Old Greek, Chinese, Confederate and Panama Canal bond certificates have been very popular this year. In addition, scandals like Lehman Bros. and Enron, and stock certificates signed by John D. Rockefeller and other famous businessmen continue to be our top sellers.

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 $1,000,000 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.
