About

A blog about scripophily
Scripophily is about collecting and researching antique stocks and bond certificates. You might want to read this post about "scripophily". Besides the collecting activity itself, I find myself often carried away when researching the history behind a certificate. 

My scripophily CV
I am collecting for over 30 years now and I am currently member of the International Bond & Shares Society Norsk Selskap for Scripofili and EDHAC.

Some of my articles can also be read in:

In 2011, I gladly contributed some scripophily items to the "Railroads and tramways in Ypres" exhibition in Ypres. I was awarded the Journalistenpreis Historische Wertpapiere und Finanzgeschichte in 2016. On the occassion of the 40th Anniversary of the Svenska Föreningen för Historiska Värdepapper, which took place in Stockholm on 29 Nov 2019, I gave a talk "History of Computing in 20 Bonds & Shares".

Stay up to date
I wish I could publish an article once a week, but a weekly schedule is hard to maintain. On average I publish about 3 postings per month. If you don't want to miss a post then you can stay up-to-date in several ways as described here.

Support the blog
This blog is about exchanging information. The best way to support this blog, is to :
  • share your opinions or questions in the comments section at the end of a blog post;
  • participate in a poll which I sometimes set up, see here ;

For those who want to support financially, I have some spare material that maybe fits in your collection. Please ask for an up-to-date list.

So, that's it. Thank you for visiting !
