Collecting and dealing stocks and bonds is an exciting venture, and different categories offer something for every taste. Between railroads, automotive, aviation, mining, oils, communications, insurance, banking, and autographs, George H. LaBarre Galleries, Inc. has a variety of stocks and bonds that cater to all collectors.
Treasure Hunting Appeal
Stocks and bonds were used in colonial times, early shipping, railroads, throughout the Industrial Revolution, into the automotive age, the Crash of 1929, and all through the past decades of economic growth. Dealers and collectors alike can enjoy rich history in these documents, which are of great educational value. In 1978, the enthusiasm for this field began to pick up in Europe. Since then, American demand has grown steadily. This fresh, new, and vibrant hobby offers many bargains and little treasures.
Stocks and bonds are becoming very difficult to find. Most of George H. LaBarre Galleries’ inventory was acquired 10 to 25 years ago, and demand has grown steadily over the years as supply has gone down. It has taken 25 years to build these collections that they now offer. This is an art form that is slowly dying, and most companies do not issue these to stockholders anymore, so this is a chance for flea market and swap meet vendors to enter into this collectible world with very little money.
High in Value
Back in 1981, the most valuable railroad stock sold for $3,000. This same collectible stock signed by Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt now sells for $12,000, and other stocks can sell for as much as $130,000. Compare this record price to other collectibles, where single coins have sold for over $4 million, a stamp can sell in the million dollar range, and autographs have sold for over a million dollars. This shows that quality collectible stocks and bonds represent very good value in today’s market.
George H. LaBarre Galleries, Inc. offers all of these great stock, bonds, and currency for competitive prices. Having been in business for over 37 years and specializing in collectible stock and bonds for over 27 years, they provide a perfect opportunity for vendors to start their own business or increase revenue. Their goal is to serve collectors and dealers in a friendly and professional manner, as well as to make collecting and dealing fun and exciting.
