A private collection from Numismatist / Photographer Simon Smith.

Stocks, Shares and Bond Certificates


Scripophily is the study and collection of stocks and bonds. A specialized field of numismatics, scripophily is an interesting area of collecting due to both the inherent beauty of some historical documents as well as the interesting historical context of each document. Some stock certificates are excellent examples of engraving.

Occasionally an old stock document will be found that still has value as a stock in a successor company.
