These pieces are simply beautifull! Those of you that have RR stock certificates do you research the company too or do you just apreciate the document. Im kinda history guy. If I owned one I think I would frame it with some kind of description or historical acount of the document.

I just received a stock certificate of the "Providence and Worcester Railroad Company" The reason I bought it is that it has a RN-T4 Revenue stamp otherwise, nothing fancy about the certificate. Perhaps unfortunately, it has the company embossed seal placed on top, a bulls eye cancel if ever there was one.

I'll post a scan of it in the next day or so. Its sometimes difficult living in two places with parts of your collection in separate states.

Here is one from the New York, Ontario and Western Railway Company. While these stocks are simply beautiful, I do not collect them but ones got one so it is lying around in my piles...

I'm a big fan of stocks and bonds, particularly railroads, and I was very pleased to discover this forum after I joined. So I thought I'd give this thread a bump with several I just picked up recently. These are all unissued, but since I collect for the engravings that's not a big issue for me.

Fernmato, one of the most comprehensive books/websites on railroad stocks/bonds is Terry Cox's:

Nice stocks there. I don't actively collect them, though I do have some in my collection of "stuff". Those are unissued, very clean looking.

I just remembered this one that I have:

I thought it might be nice to see some new posts on this thread. Here is one of my oldest railroad stocks, from the Baltimore & Ohio, issued in 1846. Railroad stocks and bonds only go back to about 1835.

Thought I'd throw out another oldie I picked up recently. Erie & Ohio Railroad; this one is unissued but was printed in the late 1840s.

Beautiful! I just looked at eBay to find hundreds of differing certificates priced from $3 up, many around $30. Most were generally nice looking - nothing like these though. Thanks for sharing.
