Digest of scripophily readings XII

New online scripophily articles and references, November 2013


Taiwan Stock Museum
About one year ago, the Taiwan Stock Museum (TSM) was opened officially to the public in Taipei. The museum was created by the Taiwan Depository & Clearing Corporation (TDCC) following the completion of the company's move to a paperless depository of securities in July 2011. The museum, which includes an interactive multimedia hall, shows artifacts and many stocks and bonds that have witnessed the historical development of Taiwan's stock market.

NONVALEURS on Tumblr
Hans-Georg Glasemann, author of many books and articles, see for example here, is also the writer of many scripophily related posts on his NONVALEURS blog on Tumblr. You'll find out that Mr. Glasemann's topics cover all themes worldwide. Most articles are written in German, here is one of my favorites about Papua New Guinea, but occasionally you can detect stories written in English, like this one about early attempts to connect France and the UK by means of a railway tunnel. Tumblr is a social-media blogging platform, so you can "Follow" the NONVALEURS blog and never miss a post !

Indian scripophily
WWW.indianscripophily.com " has been created to promote interest in collecting Indian material. It will be regularly updated as previously unknown certificates come to light." This website is a great place to discover scripophily related to India. Several hundreds, probably thousands of bonds and share certificates spanning India's modern history are on display and categorized by theme. I wonder who's authoring or running the site.
