I am curious, I have seen a few posts mention an item is modern. What is the cut off date or determining factor between modern and old/classic for these type of items?

And have to say there are some attention grabbing items in this forum.

Thanks.

If the question really is about checks, stocks and bonds then it's different for each country.

For the UK, I think the Bills of Exchange Act 1882 is the start of the modern era for cheques/checks, around 1695 for UK stocks, and 1694 for bonds.

For coins, I think it's 1600.

With all these things, not only is it a different answer for each country, but there will be many different opinions as to what modern means and when the modern era started.

Hi scopru, glad you are enjoying this new sub-forum! We're doing our best to keep it interesting. :-)

I don't think there's any exact cut-off between "classic" and "modern" in terms of North American stocks and bonds. I kind of draw the line around the 1960s. There is a distinct difference in format that started to creep in around then. Classic designs nearly always had a border framing the certificate. Modern certificates tended to have vertical lathework bars on one or both sides. But there are plenty of classic frames all the way into the 2000s. It just depended on the preference of the client.

Thanks for the answers. And I am enjoying the forum. I see a lot of ways to tie these items into a general collection given their history.

Thanks!
