How do you research old stock certificates?

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 cancellation 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 and 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 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.

Are stocks sold in 1926 still worth anything?

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.

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.

Are old nickels worth anything?

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.

Is old costume jewelry worth anything?

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 with 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.

Are old postcards worth anything?

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 more 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.
