Historical and collectible Stocks and Bonds compliment coin collecting really well. In fact it is a segment of the numismatic field of collectibles which isn't mentioned very much. The hobby of collecting historical and collectible stocks and bonds is called scripophily. Scripophily was invented by taking the word scrip and philia, a form of brotherly love, otherwise known as the hobby of the love of scrip "scripophily." It's a fun hobby to be a part of. You can collect a game board set which includes various Railroads from the "Monopoly" game. There are old game board sets and new ones. Alternatively, you can collect a set of Americas Greatest Corporations with their respective histories in an album with protective page holders for your historical and collectible stocks and bonds.
Hi Everyone, Just a short blog tonight as I wanted to share with you my latest addition to my toned Mercury Dime Collection! This one comes from an auction I recently won. It is a 1942 Mercury Dime or "Winged Liberty Head". Graded by NGC as a MS62. Unfortunately no Full Bands, but to me the toning makes up for that. It shows amazing blue, violet and orange tones on the reverse... While the obverse is more golden. There's something about these Mercury Dimes from the 1940's that seem to really tone beautifully, more so than other dates. Any ideas on why this might be? I hope you enjoyed my blog! Any comments are welcomed! Please note that scratches are on the holder...not the coin.
