Two Early Ohio Railroad Stock Certificates (scripophily) with classic railroad scenes. First is a Cincinnati Wilmington & Zanesville RR issued in 1856 -- pre Civil War -- with vignette of old steam locomotive train on bend. Issued to Dayton & Cincinnati RR, who eventually took over this line. VF+ condition with close cut left border. The second is a 1860s Little Miami RR, a civil war vintage certificate with vignette of Tom Thumb train (one of earliest trains in US railroad history). Both are in VF+ condition with the typical pen - hole cancellation of the period.
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.
