Phelps Dodge Corp. Stock Certificate // 1-99 shares // Green // 1950s-60s
Throughout history, companies competed to produce the most impressive stock and bond certificates with brilliant colors, intricate designs, and beautiful vignettes. However, with the rise of the internet and online brokerage firms in the 1990s, the need for physical certificates disappeared. One by one, companies quietly discontinued issuance of their paper stocks and bonds. A newsworthy example was Walt Disney's decision in 2013 to phase out their colorful stock certificates featuring renditions of their beloved animated characters. The eventual demise of the stock certificate ends a tradition that extends back at least 400 years, when the Dutch East Indies Company became the first company to issue certificates. Today, the beautiful stock and bond certificates that remain are enduring relics from a bygone era in American financial history.
This stock certificate for Phelps Dodge Corp. comes from a series of 99 shares that date back to the 1950s-60s. It is guaranteed authentic by the expert staff of Olevian Numismatic Rarities and includes a certificate of authenticity.
