1947 Tucker Corp Stock Certificate with a facsimile signature of its visionary founder, Preston Tucker. Preston Tucker was an automotive entrepreneur, who after World War II designed a highly innovative automobile with a futuristic shape, a swiveling center headlight, independent four-wheel suspension, and many passenger safety features. The car was never produced, though 50 hand-built prototype Tucker '48s were built. Tucker was accused of stock fraud, that he never intending to produce the vehicle. He was acquitted, but the company failed. His legacy was documented in the 1988 movie, Tucker: The Man and His Dream. Certificate is in 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.
