Scripophily.com offering Free Studebaker Packard and AIG Stock Certificates
WASHINGTON, DC (April 21, 2009) - Scripophily.com ®, the Internet’s largest buyer and seller of collectible stock and bond certificates, is offering a Free Studebaker Packard Stock Certificate on all orders and a Free American Insurance Group (AIG ) Stock Certificate on all orders over $200.
Scripophily (scrip-ah-fil-ly) is the hobby’s name of collecting old stock and bond certificates. Values range from a few dollars to more than $100,000 for the rarest. There are tens of thousands of Scripophily buyers worldwide include casual collectors, corporate archives, museums and serious collectors.
“During these unprecedented economic times, we felt that it was appropriate to offer a free stock certificate from the Studebaker Packard Corporation (Company resulting from the merger of Studebaker and Packard Automobile Companies) that was forced to close its operations in 1963 due to economic problems” said Scripophily.com’s CEO and Founder, Bob Kerstein.
“We also felt that a stock certificate from American Insurance Group (AIG ) was a company representative of the excesses, government bailout and hard economic times of today” added Kerstein.
While the hobby of Scripophily continues to grow, the supply of new certificates reaching the collector market is on the decline. Fewer certificates are being printed on the front end and most cancelled certificates are being destroyed on the back end. The decline of stock certificates are a result of major stock exchanges and the Security and Exchange Commission’s rules no longer requiring companies to issue physical stock certificates (Dematerialization ) as well as the controlled destruction of cancelled stock certificates.
