1873 Milwaukee & St Paul RW Scrip Stock Certificate signed by Russell Sage. Russell Sage (1816-1906) was an important 19th century financier, who made a fortune in the wholesale grocery business, eventually moving on to railroad and other investment opportunities, often with Jay Gould as a partner. He was inventor of "put" and "call" options. Leaving $70 million when he died, his fortune funded the Russell Sage Foundation. This scripophily certificate is in VF condition with multiple punch cancellations, two which affect Sage signature.
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.
