1890s Ohio & Mississippi RW Stock Certificate. Very attractive scripophily certificate with steam locomotive vignette. The Ohio and Mississippi RW operated between Cincinnati, Ohio, and East St. Louis, Illinois from 1857 to 1893. On October 6, 1866, an Adams Express Co car was robbed by the Reno Gang just east of Seymour, Indiana becoming the first train robbery in US history. In 1893, the Ohio & Mississippi merged with the Baltimore and Ohio SW RW, which is now part of CSX Transportation. VF+ condition.
Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. You can opt out of insurance, which I generally recommend. Ruby Lane strongly encourages insurance. However, this may not make sense on scripophily shipments (which are not exactly breakable). My experience in mailing thousands of packages is that less than one out of 500 packages does not arrive in good condition. Still, Insurance is recommended on orders over $100. On multiple certificate orders Ruby Lane does not compute the insurance charge correctly. I will correct overpayments, but it is best to get accurate order amount before paying. Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
