Vintage Signature Resorts Stock Certificate 1997

12" x 8 1/2" ~

This is something special here and you can find this version selling for $100's online (see other version in store). Signature Resorts was the largest vacation company in the world during this time period. These are nontransferable stocks that were given out right before the company rebranded under the name Sunterra Corporation in 1998. They have a unique restriction on the back which you don't see on the normal ones (see other in-store). They also had two different stamps they used to mark them, see pictures, and video. These are signed by the company President and Secretary. I seem to have a large percentage of Iconic companies who were given this stock in very large amounts. I can't guarantee who or what you will get it is going to be luck of the draw as I am on autopilot parenting, listing, shipping, and if I am lucky hopefully sleeping a few hours.

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 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.
The Vintage Nontransferable Signature Resorts Stock Certificate, Worlds Largest Vacation Company, 1997 is the yin, to your yang. You've found what you're looking for.
