Vintage Peekskill Financial Company Stock Certificate New York 1990s

12" x 8" ~

Peekskill Financial Corporation, a savings and loan company was swallowed whole by Sound Federal Bancorp in 2000 and was then consumed by Hudson City Bancorp the largest savings bank in New Jersey at the time and one of the oldest banks in the United States. They were actually one of the few banks to survive the housing boom and actually were rated the best bank of 2007 by Forbes. Then of course it was acquired by M&T Bank which is a huge finance institute hovering at the edge of the Fortune 500. Their sponsorships include the stadium of the Baltimore Ravens and are also the official bank of the Buffalo Bills. These historic pieces are such neat pieces of Americana! This gallery in the UK grabbed the only others I am familiar with of these Grab this patriotic historic piece while it is available.

Imagine hanging this vintage historic collectible on your wall as home décor 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 with the time it would take to do thousands of certificates my mother and I decided years ago not to bother.
