On August 19th we had the Great Eclipse across a great deal of the United States.  My wife and I decided to travel to Franklin, North Carolina to see it.  While there we visited the Franklin Gem and Mineral Museum (www.fgmm.org).

And in the museum was a stock certificate for a local mining company, the Franklin Mica & Mining Company, Inc.

This is another example of finding scripophily in new and interesting places that was started by Roland Schmidt.  If you would like to see his original article, please press here.

If you have any similar examples of scripophily items presented in non-scripophily exhibitions, please share!
