  • Wall Street History comes alive in Tysons Corner! On January 28, and 29th, 2005,  the Professional Scripophily Traders Association - is sanctioning and attending the Fourth Annual Northern Virginia stock and bond show and auction. The event is devoted to the pursuit of old stocks and bonds, a collecting hobby formally known as Scripophily. It is very similar to that of coins and stamps. Today most people who invest in the stock market receive a computerized confirmation of their ownership of stock. Prior to the advent of computerized trading ornately illustrated stock  certificates were the standard proof of ownership in a company. Those certificates that have survived remain today as collectibles. While many people own stocks and bonds, many others are not aware of the history of the stock market. As such, Scripophily offers a fine opportunity to better understand and appreciate the history of finance over time.

    The live auction which will be held on Friday evening January 28, 2005 at the Tysons Corner Marriott Hotel. The catalog illustrates many examples of the certificates issued to companies to finance their growth and as such remain today as source documents demonstrating the history of free enterprise. A number of certificates of local interest will be found within the catalog’s pages as well as at the show on Saturday. A few examples are the Mount Vernon Memorial Association, George Gunther, Jr. Brewing Company of Baltimore, Emerson Drug Company of Baltimore, Washington Utilities Company and many more.

    There will be over fifty tables with offerings by some of the World’s largest dealers in old stocks and bonds including Scott J. Winslow Associates, Inc.,, George H. LaBarre Galleries, Inc., R. M. Smythe & Co. and many others. People who have old stocks and bonds buried away are invited to come speak with some of the world’s leading authorities to determine collectible value and possible saleability of their certificates. The public is invited to attend the auction free of charge while the show admittance fee is $3.00.
