This topic is about the hobby of a Scripophilist.
Scripophily is the hobby of collecting stock & bond certificates.
As in any hobby a collector tends to over collect from buying to many over the years. So sooner or later some have to be sold to make room for others.
I have a few price guides that tell how much an old stock or bond may be worth. One guide lists over 25,000 different stocks & bonds from around the world. So if you want to know the collector value of an old stock or bond just ask & I'll look it up for you.
I have a website you can check out too maybe you have one of the stocks listed.
Collect documents of financial history!
