Product Pricing Policies

Home > Frequently Asked Questions

At we make every attempt to offer you consistently competitive prices on every item in our store. All prices are listed in U.S. dollars. We consider many factors in our pricing approach including cost, supply and demand,  customer satisfaction, historical significance, condition, and most importantly, we expect to be in business 10 years from now.

Please note that if you buy a modern certificate from a discount or full service broker, it can cost you between $55 to $100 and that doesn't even include the cost of the stock. You will be charged for a commission and certificate issuance fee. Furthermore, if the company has been delisted and no longer traded, you will unable to get the certificate. Also, the modern certificates we offer usually have not been folded in thirds which is usually done if you order them directly from a broker. Lastly, the certificates are not issued in your name so if you frame the certificate and/or subsequently resell it as a collectible, the certificate won't have your personal information printed on its face. We do not require you to buy a frame from us as this is optional.

With this in mind, we will commit to provide our customers a fair and balanced pricing policy. We always strive for 100% customer satisfaction. If you see an item that we offer on another website at a lower price,  please give us the opportunity to match the price. Send us an email. If we can match that price, we will let you know right away.   Remember, if you buy from us, our company's name, guarantee and proven track record stands behind it. Our lifetime guarantee of authenticity remains on every item we sell.  If you have any questions on any of our products, please don't hesitate to call us at 703-579-4209 or toll free at 1-888-STOCKS6. Thanks for visiting our website.
