Answer . Wow! Interesting question..... I used Scripophily.com to find out info and value on an old company stock for a client at my last job. . http://www.scripophily.net/cp-old.html. It's 40 bucks.
Here are a number of suggestions from various WikiAnswer contributors: To do this in the most inexpensive manner, you should first check and see if this stock certificate has been cancelled. Normally the stock will have a cancellation or redeemed date and/or company/representative firm/bank cance…llation stamp. Often this is also done by chipping the certificate and putting small holes in the paper to spell redeemed or cancelled or some other related word. Then, you should find someone who buys and sells collectible stock certificates and see if they have ever sold these OR ask how much they will sell one to you PRIOR to telling them you have one. You can also research the company name on the certificate through the New York Stock Exchange information service or the NASDAQ service. Open a brokerage account and deposit the certificates. The brokers will run the CUSIP and figure out if they belong to a renamed/merged company, whether they have split or conglomerated, and if they're still traded. You can contact the state that your certificate was incorporated in, each state has a department that handles such things. This site has each state's department contact information listed. See Sources and Related Links, further down this page, for more information about that. Databases/directories of corporate changes can also be useful in determining the value of your shares. Reasonably priced databases and those available to the public that is. See Sources and Related Links for more information. Most local business libraries could help you out. The next step is then to contact either the transfer agent (found on the stock certificate) just google the name and you should have a number to call. They will have all information as to what happened to the company, if anything was left for investors etc.. if by any chance the companies transfer agent has also gone by the wind. You might want to go for professional help. A broker or other financial advisor can help. Alternatively, you can go with an online research firm to evaluate the position. It might be impossible even if you were to spend countless hours of effort to get near the sum of information provided by professional help, such as pinpoint financial information, stellar histories and values. There are also excellent old stock research services like OldCompany.com and Scripophily.com that can tell you what happened to the company for a small fee. They can also tell you if the certificate has any collectible value. See Scripophily.net for listing of over 18,000 certificates. Be careful with some old stock research services that are not members of the Better Business Bureau, have little business experience and claim to be experts in collectible stock and bond certificates. Many of these so called experts have little experience in determining whether your old company stock has real value as a collectible or redeemable security. Always check to see what the Better Business Bureau says about them. See Sources and Related Links for more information. (MORE)
It depends on the condition of the note, such factors as folds,creases, staining, tears, separation, etc. and the signatures onthe front of the note.
I believe that in 1970 Kenneth Kaunda, the first President of Zambia (which is the African Republic that succeeded Northern Rhodesia), nationalised the assets of the Rhodesian Selection Trust. The RST was allied to the London-based mining corporation, The Selection Trust (founded by Chester Beatty) …which subsequently was purchased by BP and then passed on to Rio Tinto. (MORE)
Yep, do a comparison check on Ebay or Crigslist and you will see it is worth while listing it on any of those sight.
Yes, some Pennsylvania railroad stock certificate will be worthsome money to railroad collectors today. The stock itself is rarelyvaluable, but the certificate can be worth up to several hundredsof dollars to collectors who enjoy railroad memorabilia.
My dad has some Midvale Mining Company and there is a letter dated April 1, 1984 which gave equal shares in Midvale Land Company to replace the Midvale Mining Company shares.

Rembrandt lived 1606-1669, so it is highly unlikely that he should have painted much in 1814.
This is a more complex question than you think. The short answer is, if the company's still in business and hasn't bought back the shares, the stocks are still good. \n. \nWhere it gets complex is in stock splits and reverse stock splits. For today's example we will say you have a stock certificate… for 100 shares of Acme that was issued the first trading day of 1926. The person who bought the shares for $10 per share never sold them and told his descendants never to sell them. \n. \nOn the first trading day of 1928, Acme stock has risen to the price of $40, and it's worrying the directors. They execute a 4 for 1 stock split. Now there are four times as many shares outstanding and each is worth $10. Right now, you own 400 shares of Acme stock. You still have the certificate for 100 shares, but someone in the Acme company has recorded against your ledger that you really own 400 shares. \n. \nFive years later, Acme is $25 per share. They execute a 5 for 2 stock split--each share becomes 2.5 shares that cost $10 each. Now you have 1000 shares.\n. \nTen years later, they do a 3 for 2 split, giving you 1500 shares, followed by some more splits that end you up with 20,000 shares of Acme. They've got all this written down. If you go to Acme's office and tell them you want to know how many shares you really own, they can tell you. (MORE)
Yes. Depending on the year, the denomination, the condition and in many cases the variant of the coin, they can be worth quite a lot.
You can go to a specialist in antiques and find out its worth. I recommend posting a picture of it on the internet and seeing if there are any responses.
You can contact the state that your certificate was incorporated in, each state has a department that handles such things.

They will have all information as to what happened to the company, if anything was left for investors etc.. if by any chance the companies transfer agent has also gone by the wind. The state will be able to determine for you when the companies charter was cancelled although will not be able to tell you if any dividends or other capital payments were left for investors. In all I would go with professional help, a broker or other financial advisor can help.Or can visit an online researchers like stockcertexpert.com they are the cheapest and are the best value. They deliver an amazing report of the value of your certificates. (MORE)
Take them to a coin dealer for an appraisal. It would be a good idea to borrow a price guide (the Blackbook or Guide to US Coins for US coins) from the library and try to separate the 'good stuff' from the 'junk' first.
Yes , old Aruban coins have their worth. It's still possible to exchange your leftover Aruban currency into your home currency. Two easy sources for currency exchange are major airlines and major banks. Both sources have currency exchange desks. Also your leftover Aruban currency is valuable as a do…nation to UNICEF's [United Nations Children's Fund] Change for Good program.

The worth of old postcards depends on the subject matter and theage. Whether they are written on or not, they might have somevalue. It also depends a great deal on what a buyer is willing topay.
As with many old coins the answer is a definite "maybe". For US nickels, look for dates earlier than 1946. Some of them,e.g. "war nickels" with a large mint mark over Monticello on theback, are worth more because they have a small amount of silver inthem. Others, e.g. 1940 and 1941, are only worth …a bit more thanface value. 1938 and 1939 Jefferson nickels are collectible,especially if they have an "S" mint mark to the right ofMonticello. Buffalo nickels that still have visible dates can beworth at least a dollar and possibly more, while Liberty Head(a/k/a "V") nickels command a price of at least a couple of dollarsin worn condition. The situation is equally complicated for Canadian nickels. Most ofthe coins with a picture of Queen Elizabeth are only worth facevalue to 10 or 15 cents, but a few varieties and errors among thoseminted in 1953-54 can be worth hundreds of dollars; nickels withthese dates should be examined by a professional. Earlier dateswith a portrait of George VI can be worth at least 25 cents, witherrors and special varieties carrying a higher premium. Finally,any with a portrait of George V retail for at a couple of dollarsat the minimum. (MORE)
Well, Republic airlines bought North Central in 1979, exchangingone share of Republic Stock for one share of North Central. Manyyears later Northwest Orient Bought Republic airlines for 17dollars per share

I have a stock certificate for 9 shares of LA gear common stock is it worth anything
When a meteorite lands it makes a rather large bang. Anyone would hear it from miles around, no matter how small it is. I imagine you'd find yourself not being allowed near the scene once the army get there (or have i been watching too many movies?)
Yes very much so especially the pins with the big chunky crystals or gems in them. There was some very good costume jewelry made from the 20's through 70's that isn't like the stuff they sell today. I have found, some cases, real gems and gold. The really good pieces are often stamped on the back wi…th the name of company. If you are interested in selling your things research them carefully before taking them to an antique store. Many times the store will tell you a lower price and then turn around and sell them for a really nice high price. Most collectibles have secondary market books out listing current prices, but I am not sure there is any on costume jewelry. EBay is also another place to check for the value of something. (MORE)
Mexican notes issued before 1992 are worth 1/1000th of their face value in current Peso - so a 10,000 Peso note from 1983 is worth about $0.80. Very old notes, especially in mint uncirculated condition are worth more to banknote collectors.
It depends on a few different factors: how old the cards are, what condition they are in, and what is portrayed on them. Some historical post-cards are very rare, while others are quite common. The harder-to-find the card is, and the more it is about a topic that collectors are interested in, the mo…re money it might be worth. You may want to look online at places like eBay, where there are many collectible post-cards for sale. You will see a wide range of prices. And a word from the historians among us-- old postcards, whether you can sell them or not, are often valuable for their educational importance-- because of the historical information they contain. They show us what the important landmarks were, what old streets and buildings looked like, how people used to dress, and who was considered famous (some promotional postcards were printed up by department store owners or by local musicians). And sometimes, they will contain a signature from a person who lived many years ago, and that gives you more information about who was sending postcards in those days. (MORE)
Some may have a collectors value i.e. The very first Sinclair spectrum 48k off the production line with authenticated documentation. Else to they are generally only scrap value which is low.
Is a stock certificate for the Towanda-Eldorado Oil Company from 1918 worth anything. It was incorporated in Colorado.
Most banknotes have some value, depending on the age of the note, the denomination and the condition it is in. Old notes are not necessarily worth large amounts of money just because they are old - it depends on the number of notes issued at the time and how many survive. A 1961 Russian 100 Ruble… note in mint condition would be worth $10, whilst a good used one would be worth $3. The same denomination from 2001 would be worth $30 - the same price for one dated 1912. (MORE)
Copies are rarely worth very much because, well, they're not the real thing. It probably has value only as a novelty item - maybe a couple of dollars.
It's entirely possible, since Pyramid Oil has been in continuous operation since 1909. Shares are currently trading at about $4 each, but you may wish to contact a broker experienced in dealing with very old stock certificates.
Best answer, it depends. If for instance you happen to have theLittle League participation trophy given to Hank Aaron, youpotentially have a very valuable item. But if you have Pete Peter'sleague champion bowling trophy from the Winn, Michigan Bowl A Rama,1976, you have a paperweight.
Nothing. You can not sell it or trade it to anyone. If you want to get rid of it, you can sell it back to the team only for $45 I believe. GBP stock is not openly traded on the market. It is really a big fundraising momento.
For the collector value with the exceptions of errors and specially made proof coins, the penny would have to be made before 1959.
How do you find out if the stock certificate of western travelers life insurance is still worth anything?
First check with A.M. Best Company to find out the corporate history and states that Western Travelers was admitted in, then contact the Western Travelers directly or a state insurance department to find out what happened to them.
Depending on what year, and condition the magazines are in. also, what's in them. Popular magazines are worth more
They may very well be; it depends on what they are for and how old they are. They could be very helpful to people who need to make repairs to a very old building, or to people who have an interest in the history of a place. Check with any local historical associations, or with people who are in now …in charge of the physical plant. (MORE)
If you are the registered owner of the PSFS stock, you should have received an official letter from the FDIC in February or March of 2012. Instructions were provided for redeeming your PSFS (a.k.a. Meritor) stock certificates. An FDIC agent informed me the common shares are being redeemed at $4.27 e…ach. (MORE)
Of course. The financial worth would depend on many factors like condition, rarity, what country it is from, etc.
Only towards the purchase of a new one. You usually get like a 5-10.00 discount returning it in box new one came in with your receipt. Look at core charge (on receipt) for redemption amount.
go to a coin and dollar museum Correction A coin museum won't have information about banknotes, and there's no such thing as a "dollar museum". You have to know several things about the bills: > Their dates > What letter if any is next to or below the date > What color their seals are … For older bills you often need to know what bank or Federal Reserve district issued them, how worn they are, and other things that depend on the individual bill.

You can reuse an old calendar when the days and dates match in a future year, such as 2021 and 2027.
Copper could be a factor. The penny's made today are not made of copper I would go to a copper dealer.

If you refer to predecimal British Halfpennies, they can be worth anything from not much to quite a lot depending on the year and condition of the coin.. British decimal Halfpennies have almost no collector value unless they are in mint uncirculated condition, and even then it is not much..
For a wheat cent to have an significant value, it generally has to be pre-WWII.
In circulation they're always worth the face value of the bill. Asfor the collector value, in very good condition (not a gradingphrase) they will usually be worth $3-$4 depending on the year theywere printed, and possibly much more if they're older than 1935, orare special such as the wartime bills …printed for use in Hawaii andNorth Africa. If in mint condition they could be worth a fewdollars more. There are exceptions that are worth much more. See related link below. (MORE)
They can be, depending on how old they are and the style. People make replicas though, so only people looking for authentic keys would be buying the antique ones. Check ebay and see what people are paying.
For the most part, they're worth maybe $1.50 to a collector. A coindealer won't pay a premium unless it's in exceptional condition, orperhaps a star note.
