INTERESTED IN SELLING YOUR STOCK CERTIFICATES? -

I am always looking for pre-1920 mining company stock certificates in good condition. Simply send scans to contact@oldwesthistorystore.com. I will contact you with a possible offer usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind that I purchase most stock certificates for resale (like any other antique dealer) and can't pay full retail and still stay in business.

Another option is to simply mail your stock certificates to me for evaluation and offer. Please contact me via email with a basic list of what you have to offer. I will send you my mailing address upon request. In the unlikely event we do not come to an agreement regarding price, I will mail the certificates back to you at my expense.

For larger lots, I may need to see the certificates in person. Scanning and emailing a large number of stocks is very time-consuming (for both of us).

A word about "Sentimental Value" -
I completely understand how certificates inherited from family members may have sentimental value. So many times potential sellers tell me they need a much higher price for their documents because of this. As a dealer, I cannot resell sentimental value. If this is the case, I recommend holding on to them.  

*** This is not an appraisal.
An appraisal represents the full retail value during the best of times. (See below for appraisals) Serious sellers only please. There is of course no cost for an offer.

LOOKING FOR COMPANY HISTORIES? -

As much as I would like to, I cannot offer specific information about old mining companies. With so much correspondence, there are just not enough hours in a day.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DO YOUR CERTIFICATES STILL HAVE "ACTUAL" STOCK VALUE? -

It is up to the seller to establish that their stock certificates have no "real" stock value before contacting me. I do not have the resources to do this type of stock research. I am interested only in collector value.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JUST NEED AN APPRAISAL? -

If you are not ready to sell, but just need a full retail appraisal, send stock certificate scans to contact@oldwesthistorystore.com. The cost is $5.00 per company. (I will send my PayPal payment address upon request) I will reply with an appraisal within 48 hours.
***I only appraise pre-1920 mining stock certificates since this is my specialty.
