Product Description

Want to be like me and own loads of shares of bankrupt companies?  Well, here is your chance.  In 1927, the International Mercantile Marine Co. sold the White Star Line to Royal Mail group.  The transaction made White Star British owned again, but that didn’t last long.  IMM had to start repossession proceedings in the 1930s for not being paid in full.  These shares were issued in order to help finance the purchase of White Star.  The original owner of this certificate was a tiny part owner of RMS Olympic!  Now you can be, too.  Frames beautifully, which is how I display mine.  In excellent condition and measures about 10.75″ x 9″.
