Union Pacific Railroad Original Stock Certificate G8 Collectible Historic For Sale
Authentic Union Pacific Railroad Corporation stock certificate for 100 shares dated during the 1970's and 1980's. This is an original document, not a copy or reproduction. The certificate has an ornate orange/red border with a vignette of three workers standing in back of a train wheel and a landscape scene below them. Union Pacific -- chartered by an act of Congress and signed into law by Abraham Lincoln -- was created to link America's East and Midwest to the rapidly growing West Coast and to open trade with the Orient. In 1867, the Chicago and North Western connected Chicago with Omaha, thus helping to complete the first transcontinental railroad two years later. And, in 1869, the Central Pacific (later, part of the Southern Pacific) met with Union Pacific as the final link in this transcontinental line. The driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory, Utah marked the opening of economic development in the Western United States.The certificate is in Mint condition (no creases). Each certificate has the normal punch cancellation and staple holes. Certificate would make a fine addition to your collection, as a framed print or a great unique gift. Stock certificates are becoming a hot collectible due to the advent of electronic trading which has virtually eliminated the issuance of certificates.
