Just rediscovered a box of old certificates, some going back more than 100 years, given to me by a friend who had no interest in them. I know some have value, but there are many I couldn't identify.
One of the certificates is listed @ $395, while others are in the $20 to $50 range.
My friend, since passed away, received them from his own father who had been a broker in the Chicago Market in the 1920' and 30's.
Wondering if anyone here has had experience in collecting or buying and selling.

Assuming they are old worthless stocks issued from the 20s and 30s and you are trying to determine a collectible value....EBay is a good source as well as Heritage Auctions (HA.com)....you can search past sales and auctions at either/both sites.
