News-Antique.com - May 17,2010 - WASHINGTON, DC (May 13, 2010) - Scripophily.com ®, the Internet's largest buyer and seller of collectible stock and bond certificates, is offering a Free Cinerama (Pre Imax) Stock Certificate on all orders and a Free Greek Gold Bond Certificate date 1898 on all orders over $200.

There are tens of thousands of Scripophily buyers worldwide include casual collectors, corporate archives, museums and serious collectors.
"Cinerama was in the business of producing and distributing wide screen motion pictures before IMAX came along. They produced such hit movies as How the West Was Won , It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Grand Prix, and 2001, A Space Odyssey. In addition, they were the operator and owner of hotels in Hawaii and owner and operator of motion picture theatres on the West Coast." said Scripophily.com's CEO and Founder, Bob Kerstein.
"We are also offering a beautiful engraved bond certificate from the Kingdom of Greece issued in 1898 for L100. This debt instrument is a 2.5 Percent 20 year bond and is unusual because it has guarantees from France, Great Britain and Russia in the event of default. The certificate has an ornate blue border with a vignette statues of Aphrodite, Apollo, Athena and Hypocrites. In addition there is the Greek Kingdoms Coat of Arms. This item also has a 10 shilling orange tax stamp dated 1899. This is a vertical format BOND and is over 112 years old." according to 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.
