Rare Antique Penn Seaboard Steel Stock Certificate, American USA Steel Icon, Pennsylvania and Delaware 1926

12" x 8" ~

This company was incorporated in 1916 and later merged together with the Carpenter Steel Company and the Tacony Steel Company both out of PA also. They were a prominent North Eastern steel company that employed 1000's of Americans. This is a hard-to-find stock definitely take advantage of my prices while I have these available. Really neat archive picture of their Delaware factory here

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 gone all 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.

My pictures seriously don't do it justice. 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 and the time it would take to do 1000's of certificates my mother and I decided years ago not to bother.

This item has reached full antique status.
The Rare Antique Penn Seaboard Steel Stock Certificate, American Steel Icon, PA, DE 1926 was built with people like you in mind. Something to keep you happy. Every. Single. Day.
