1940 Cracker Jack Co Stock Certificate. Cracker Jack, candy-coated popcorn and peanuts, is one of the oldest mass produced snack foods. Frederick W. Rueckheim and his brother Louis produced an early version of Cracker Jack and sold it at the first Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The product and its marketing evolved through the years. Prizes were included in every box of Cracker Jack beginning in 1912. The mascots Sailor Jack and his dog, Bingo, were introduced on the Cracker Jack box in 1918. The Cracker Jack Company was purchased by Borden in 1964. Borden sold the brand to Frito-Lay in 1997. Neat scripophily certificate is in VF+ condition with closely trimmed left side with a trace of tape residue on edge of left border. This certificate is issued to Henry Eckstein Jr., son of Henry Eckstein, who developed packaging for Cracker Jack in the 1890s.
Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. Insurance is bundled with shipping. I use a third party shipping insurer (not USPS, which does not insure 1st class large envelops, and is seriously overpriced due to pervasive fraudulent claims). I offer two domestic shipping choices: $3.50 for first class, and $7.50 for Priority. Priority is recommended for orders over $100. International shipping is $6.00 for a large 1st class envelope. Other international options are usually too expensive. Shipping charge does not increase if you order more than one item. Shipping in the US is very reliable. I lose less than one item for every 1000 I ship, and I have never made a claim for a damaged shipment in over 20 years (scripophily shipments are not exactly breakable). Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
