    your lucky individual can receive in as little as a 48 - 72 hours..(2-3 day or 7-14 day
    options available)... The real collectible certificate (if your selection has not stopped
    offering paper certificates and if all required certificate printing fees are provided)

    Yes! You may purchase shares of any of the companies we offer. The transfer agent will supply a W-8 form for you to complete to certify your foreign status.

  • I have 3 Persons that I wish to purchase one share of stock for, may I have it issued in all 3 names? Or may, Both myself and my spouse own a share together

    Yes, All names will appear on the certificate, but with a JT TEN after the
    names, which stands for Joint Tenancy, Only one S.S # is required and one address.
    Ownership will belong to all 3 Persons, however the persons must be over 18.. It is also acceptable to register a share in two different last names, provided the individuals are over 18.

    No, Par Value is a dollar amount that is assigned to a security when
    representing the value contributed for each share in cash or goods. A stock
    Par Value is usually a small dollar amount that bears no relationship to the security's
    market price.

    Yes, we do have a few selections. If we do not have what you are looking for, we recommend you visit which specializes in collectible stocks and other financial related paper collectible items.

  • How is your pricing determined?

    Our pricing includes all necessary transaction fees to obtain the physical
    delivery of your one share of stock in the name of your choice, these fees include,
    the broker fee, the transfer fee, the actual value of the share, and of course our charge for processing all necessary paperwork involved for this process.

    PLEASE READ: Our company started in 1998, after conducting business for over
    20 years, we are amazed at the pace publicly traded companies have elected to
    place ownership in what is termed "BOOK ENTRY"

    not allowing shareholders to have physical possession of a paper certificate.
    Companies have started the process of holding your stock ownership in what is called
    "BOOK ENTRY" this term is defined as your ownership in a company held in electronic
    ownership in account form instead of being able to possess the paper
    share yourself.

    We are not happy these companies are choosing this way of ownership,
    however we are unable to change this method. Therefore, you will see on
    certain selections, we inform you if the company no longer
    offers the ability for us to obtain a "real" certificate printed by the company’s transfer
    agent. However, we provide a HIGH-RESOLUTION image of the share, with the registrant’s name, address,
    and date of purchase along with the printed notice on the replica share of stock, that
    this individual is a certified owner of said company, with the share being held in
    "book entry".

    ALSO: Certain companies transfer agents charge a fee to us if the they still
    provide certificates. This fee is normally $40.00 but may vary. Therefore, at your option
    you may order the real certificate. If you choose to do so,the extra fee must
    be charged to your order. We assure you we charge the exact amount the transfer agent
    charges our company to have the certificate printed.

    If you choose not to pay the fee: as you might feel it is not necessary to have the actual
    certificate printed, will receive at no charge a high-resolution printed copy of the certificate,

    With the registrant’s name, address, date of purchase, and certification of ownership of one share held in book entry of the company. We want to stress, we charge the exact fee the
    transfer agent charges us, and this fee is not controlled by our company. The Disney
    transfer agent, Broadridge, charges our company $15.00 for each instance of opening
    an account under the registrant’s name, which explains why we must charge $49.00
    instead of our usual fee of $39.00 dollars per order.
