On average, if a Minnesota railroad company is represented by any certificates, there are normally multiple varieties known. There are, however, only a moderate number of Minnesota companies represented by certificates. There seems to be a reasonable balance between collecting interest and the number of available certificates, so prices are generally moderate.
