a certificate represents ownership in an existing company. Or
check out state archives or old Moody's books on your own.
If a document is worthless as a security, it may have value as
an antique (though most aren't worth much). Forty or so dealers
nationwide, such as Scripophily.com or the New York Gift

like eBay, Amazon.com and Yahoo! are also good places to buy,
sell and price old stocks and bonds.
