  9. Hi Franky,

    I came across your list of French Scripophily terms the other day - what a good idea. I looked through my Russian certificates and came up with a few that coud be added to your list. Perhaps they are not typical of French scripophily - but they are in French and may be useful to others. I'm not a native French speaker, so I'll let you do the 'fine tuning'! A good idea that I'm sure will be useful to many.
