Welcome to the Wonderful World of collecting ANTIQUE STOCKS and BONDS, also known as SCRIPOPHILY. These documents are all guaranteed to be genuine and original forever.



1. This area of collecting has only recently been "discovered" and therefore is very undervalued! Unlike coins--- stamps--- etc--- where the prices have been extremely high for decades--- the prices of antique stocks are currently very undervalued. Great rarities--- where only 4 or 5 of a particular stock may exist--- can presently be purchased for
$300 - $ 500. In NO OTHER internationally recognized hobby can you buy such World Class Rarities for so little.  This won't be the case forever!!  .

2. Many people buy "so called "Limited Editions" of prints etc.-- where they "ONLY MADE"--- 5000 or so AND they pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for these recently CREATED "rarities"--- Why buy a Fad?-- when in Scripophily - you can buy ORIGINAL documents that are nearly 100 years old and in some cases signed by the very people who built America-- for as little as $ 25 - $100. THESE ARE the ORIGINAL LIMITED EDITIONS!!!!! Most stocks and bonds were only made in very small quantities-- and MOST were destroyed long ago. Also they are virtually impossible to counterfeit or reproduce-- as they were engraved on special BANKNOTE quality paper with engraved Vignettes or Pictures.

3. That's why I'm so excited about this HOBBY. As more and more people discover Scripophily-- TODAY'S PRICES will look like a great bargain of the century!!!

  I Want To Buy Cigar Box Labels!!!  
Paying High Prices!

I especially want all "Salesman Sample Books"of labels and "Proof Labels"-- but I will buy all others except for the very common ones.

I Am The Big Buyer!

Also buying Cigar Boxes  --mostly pre 1920 vintage  --  must have a nice label inside the lid.
