Why We Love This

A great piece of railroad history, this is an original stock certificate, issued and cancelled by the Baltimore Ohio Railroad Company. The graphics include fabulous engraved vignettes, such as a central image showing primitive railway cars on the tracks. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was the first common carrier railroad in the United States, having begun operations in 1830 after Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, headed the groundbreaking ceremonies.

The certificate comes in resalable clear bag. Expect small holes, which are original cancellation marks (near bottom and not affecting vignettes). The originality guaranteed with a certificate of authenticity from The Caren Archive, a leading source of significant historic printed matter.

Retrographics is a dream come true for all kinds of history and sports buffs. As the licensee of The New York Times, the company publishes newspaper compilations from the greatest moments in sports history. These compilations and original memorabilia offer a nostalgic and fascinating look at our American past.
