1902 Philadelphia Traction Stock signed by Titanic Victim George Widener

1902 Philadelphia Traction Co. Stock Certificate. Nice Philadelphia Trolley certificate with allegorical vignette in center and vignette of brakeman on bottom. Certificate signed by George Widener as president. George Widener was son of Peter Widener, a successful businessman who started several street railways in Philadelphia. George assumed responsibility of his father’s business and oversaw the development of cable and electric trolleys. He was president and a significant stockholder in about a dozen different streetcar companies at the time of his death. George and his son, Harry, were lost on the Titanic on April 15, 1912. Certificate is in VF condition with punch hole cancellations, which affect signature.

Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. Insurance is bundled with shipping. I use a third party shipping insurer (not USPS, which does not insure 1st class large envelops, and is seriously overpriced due to pervasive fraudulent claims). I offer two domestic shipping choices: $3.50 for first class, and $7.50 for Priority. Priority is recommended for orders over $100. International shipping is $6.00 for a large 1st class envelope. Other international options are usually too expensive. Shipping charge does not increase if you order more than one item. Shipping in the US is very reliable. I lose less than one item for every 1000 I ship, and I have never made a claim for a damaged shipment in over 20 years (scripophily shipments are not exactly breakable). Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
