The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad operated vast miles of tracks in the states of Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and also in Texas. This is the company that is famous for the Zephyr line of trains which were some of the most famous and sought after lines in use. As one of the most innovative trains of its time, the Zephyrs revolutionized rail travel - and now, you can own a piece of that legacy.

Because of this extensive range in the Midwest and mountain states, the railroads advertising slogans were "Everywhere West", "Way of the Zephyrs", and "The Way West".

11 1/2" x 7 3/4" ~ A lot of these have stamps on them also as an added bonus. I will be shipping the ones with stamps first as I don't have many of these and was very lucky to find them. If you are reading this then will be seeing one with 1-6~ stamps either on the front or back or both, not affecting the vignette at all.

My pictures seriously can't do it justice!

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 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.
