Very Rare Antique 1890s Chattanooga Rome and Southern Railroad Company Stock Certificate

11 3/4" x 7 1/4" ~

This is a beautiful certificate in amazing condition unissued and signed by the company President. This is a special one and I only have a few of them so grab one of these while you can.

This company was established in 1897 and built a rail that finally connected Chattanooga, TN to Carrollton, GA opening up a ton of possibilities. This drew the attention of the Central of Georgia Railway which purchased CR&S in 1901 and added the railroad company to their line.

My pictures seriously can't do it justice!

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 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 and bond 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 with the time it would take to do thousands of certificates my mother and I decided years ago not to bother.
