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.

Contributing information
about company presidents

I compile information about corporate presidents, CEO's, and chairmen when information can be found. These are principally the people directed the operations of railroad companies and whose names appear on certificates.

Collectors already know that many of the names that appear on certificates are hard or impossible to decipher. Their poor handwriting is greatly compounded by cancellations. You can help by contributing names of primary operational executives along with their dates in office.

It is normally impossible to discover all the people who directed companies through their entire corporate histories. The ideal is to list both beginning and ending dates of service Even a name might help someone.

(I am not interested in secondary figures such as vice presidents, board members, superintendents, treasurers, and the like. There are simply too many and personell changed constantly.)
