Welcome to Certificate Collector .com

Stock Image I'm a Scripophily collector, that is, I collect antique stock and bond certificates. I also collect related books and ephemera.

The items you'll see on this site are not for sale. They are part of my personal collection. In fact, I'm much more interested in buying certificates than selling them.

I invite you to have a look at my collection. My main area of interest is "New England Companies before 1929". I also collect highly decorative US stocks from any state. The collection is broken it down into small groups for a more logical presentation.

Money For You If you have stocks or bonds your considering selling, please contact me before selling your material to a dealer. A dealer needs to buy you items for less than 1/2 of its retail value in order to make a profit. If your items are a good fit for my collection, I'll pay much more than that. After all, if you sell it to the dealer, I'll just have to buy it from him and we'll both lose money.

If your a dealer with a catalog or newsletter, please add me to your mailing list. Go to the About Me page for my contact information. Please also check my Want List.

The Information Section provides links to various web resources related to scripophily. Its also where you can sign up for my monthly newsletter.

You may be asking yourself, "If he's not selling anything, then what's the purpose for this site?" Check the About Site page for the answer!

Thanks for stopping by.
