Unusual Ohio Bell Stock Certificate
« on: March 01, 2015, 10:48:39 AM »
I'm always looking for unusual telephone company stock certificates (scripophily) and came across this plain looking but unusual 1921 Ohio Bell stock certificate. Notice it's issued to AT&T and it's only for 1 share. While the Ohio Bell bonds show up on eBay I've never seen a stock certificate. Historically interesting as it shows AT&T ownership of Ohio Bell.

Despite what you said about it being historically interesting, he couldn't sell it.  No takers.

Other then the obscure historical fact of the AT&T and Ohio Bell connection it is a very plan certificate. Collectors like certificates with interesting images. I would buy it but not at that price.
