Neat historic document derived from an American Energy giant. This class A offering has two different styles if you have a preference let me know otherwise I just grab it from the stock. The ones with the foil on them can only have been redeemed in New York, NY, or Cleveland, Ohio and the other ones without the foil seal can only have been redeemed in New York, NY, and Cranford, NJ. Interesting!
This company was originally started in 1975 by Sun Company, Inc who is the owner of Sunoco to diversify its portfolio. They got into buying all kinds of distributorships businesses for heavy equipment and manufacturing. In October of 1986, they sold it to Shearson Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc. Because of Sun's status as a master limited partnership, it had a two-tiered structure of stock offerings Class A and B, investing in Sun became a complicated process for many potential stockholders so this was a challenging stock to get.

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.
