Collectible Stocks and Bonds from North American Railroads     by Terry Cox

A guidebook and catalog of prices
(I do NOT buy or sell certificates on this website)

Search this website for information about collecting stocks and bonds.


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


Information about collectible stocks and bonds from published books

These are books that contain references to railroad certificates, but not as many as Price guides. For instance, Tamarkin & Krantz's beautiful book contains photographs of several railroad certificates, but it does not estimate collectible values.
