Edit: Hmm, rec7's ninja edit now makes it look like I modified his quote just to make a dumb joke. Which I didn't (the modifying the quote part, I mean). Guilty as charged on the dumb joke part.

You might contact the Investor Relations listed on their website.

Hmmm, because it merged with KMart and became SHLD on the Nasdaq, they gave the original symbol of S away to Sprint. Bigcharts is where I usually go for this kind of info, but no luck.
You might try investor relations at Sears, but if their customer service is anything like at the stores, it will not be worth the hold time.

Edited to add website:
http://www.searsholdings.com/invest/
may help you with this.

Where are the shares held at? When I worked at a regional brokerage firm, they had these big books in the reorganization area that had yearly stock prices going back to the 1920's.........I suppose its on the Internet with those firms now.

I did not mean no harm ProspectiveBum. I am a poor speller so you will see all kinds of crazy things.
