Indian Scripophily Presentation

Check out the latest in the Scripophily in the News page to see a presentation on Indian Scripophily by our member Sayeed Cassim.

NEW Members Only Benefit!

A new page of publications has been added to the Members Only area of the web site.  We have added the full publications (for download) of Russian Railway Bonds, Russian City Bonds, Ottoman Empire & Turkey – Share Certificates and Bonds, and Italian Railways – Share Certificates and Bonds.

These are four classic references that were written by Drumm and Henseler in the early days of the hobby and are still very relevant today.

The International Bond and Share Society now owns the copyrights to these books.

You can go directly to the page by clicking here, but you must be logged in as a member to access this information.
