190_ Cincinnati Portsmouth & Virginia RR Stock Certificate. Beautiful, finely engraved, railroad scripophily document with vignette of passenger train at town terminal. Incorporated in 1891, this company was formerly the Ohio & Northwestern RR, provided service from Idlewild, Ohio, to Sciotoville, Ohio, a distance of 108 miles.

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.
