Seller: stockinup (7,478) 100%, Location: Vernon-Rockville, Connecticut, Ships to: Americas & many other countries, Item: 401222644224 Authentic Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad stock certificate issued in the 1950's and 1960's. This is an original certificate, not a copy or reproduction. The company was chartered in 1827 and in it's prime its routes ran east to Philadelphia and New York and West to Chicago and St. Louis. The B&O was the oldest US passenger line and is best known as one of the Monopoly game railroad stocks. Abe Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg address on a line that was part of the B&O. The B&O became part of the Chessie system (Chesapeake & Ohio and Baltimore & Ohio), which in 1980 became part of CSX transportation. The vignette is of a Tom Thumb train with a harbor scene in the background. The scan does not show the detail of the engraving used to print these certificates. The certificate is in excellent condition and has the normal punch cancellation and staple holes. Certificate would make a fine addition to your collection, as a framed print or a great gift. Stock certificates are becoming a hot collectible due to the advent of electronic trading which has virtually eliminated the issuance of certificates. Since B&O RR is no longer in existence, these certificates will become increasingly harder to find. Please review my feedback and bid with confidence. Condition: Excellent condition
