1858 Steubenville & Indiana RR Stock Certificate

1858 Steubenville & Indiana RR Stock Certificate. Attractive pre Civil War rail scripophily certificate with vignette of very early steam locomotive and passenger cars. The Steubenville and Indiana Railroad was chartered by the State of Ohio and under its charter built the road from Steubenville to Newark, 117 miles, and the Cadiz Branch in Harrison county, 7 1/2 miles in length, The company subsequently purchased the undivided half of the Central Ohio Railroad between Newark and Columbus, 33 miles, thus giving the company with the Steubenville bridge and the two roads from there to Pittsburgh a direct line from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Columbus, Ohio, a distance of 150 miles. Certificate is in VF condition with glue stain on left border (not as pronounced as shown in scan).

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.
