Search the Coxrail database for descriptions of 23,700+ certificates from over 7,400 North American railroad companies.

Celebrity autographs

NOTICE: The autographs listed here are signatures of celebrities known to have signed stocks and bonds from North American railroads.

Click on any autograph to see a short biography and a list of all known occurrences on railroad-related stocks and bonds.

Autograph samples are available for some, but not all, celebrities. Please help by sending additional examples you may have.

Do you believe other autographs should be listed here? See my extended discussion of selection critera. Please remember, this is a project about collectible railroad stocks and bonds, not autographs.

See about autographs for a discussion about the general features of autographs and autograph collecting. Keep perspective. Remember, only a TINY percentage of signatures have collectible value. Also remember, famous last names do not necessarily confer importance to children, siblings, parents, or distant relatives.

Please understand that autograph collecting is a hobby separate from collecting stocks and bonds. If you need authentication, be sure you check with dealers and authentication services in that hobby. Because I lack specialized knowledge about autographs, I DO NOT and WILL NOT authenticate autographs under any circumstances.
