This American iconic railroad was established in 1853 and primarily operated in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It connected greater New York and Boston in the east with Chicago and St. Louis in the Midwest, also the cities of Albany, Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, Rochester and Syracuse. New York Central Railroad was headquartered in New York City's New York Central Building, adjacent to its largest station, Grand Central Terminal. In 1968, the NYC merged with its former rival, the Pennsylvania Railroad, to form the conglomerate of Penn Central.

Imagine hanging this vintage historic collectible on your wall as home decor in any room! Stock certificates are another thing that is limited in supply and once they are all gone into museums and collections, they will be hard to get. They are such historic documents with so much history behind them. The first stock certificate was issued in 1606 by the Dutch East India Company. 407 years of history later the Walt Disney Company issued one of the last paper stock certificates from a major corporation in 2013.

These had to be done on heavy paper stock, almost like a dollar bill but stiffer and more durable, which makes them stay vibrant and new looking for a long time. The other very unique thing about stock certificates is they have all kinds of interesting signatures, and you honestly never know whom you will find. Almost all stocks are signed by the company President and Secretary. Some collectors research the other signatures and historic significance, and it adds so much provenance and value to an already valuable item. I have never done this as I can barely read my own signature let alone one from over 100 years ago.
