Imagine hanging this antique 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 bond certificates is they could have all kinds of interesting signatures and or stamps, and you honestly never know whom you will find. Almost all bonds 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.
