following leads and obtaining answers.
Books we use in the preliminary stage of our investigations
include, among others, Poor's Manuals and Moody's Manuals dating
back to the 1860s, Fisher's Manuals of Valuable and Worthless

older issues of the National Stock Summary.
The cost to conduct such an investigation is $85.00 US per
company to be traced, which includes a free collectible appraisal of your
certificate if the shares are determined to be valueless.
