I was asked by a friend to give him an idea of how much these stocks are worth that were given to him by his grandfather some time ago. I've already found just about all of them and there were a lot of them. They few here are the ones I just couldn't find much of anything on.
Any help would be much appreciated and thank you in advance!
Greetings EcoBrony -- Thanks for posting these. I have to confess, these are a little outside my collecting interest. I generally collect engraved stocks and the smaller mines rarely had the money or inclination to spend much on their certificates. But I can offer my opinion for what it's worth.
There is definitely collector interest in Western mining stocks, particularly gold mines. It can be hard to gauge value, because collectors may be willing to pay more for mines they know from their local area. These stocks are all issued and not cancelled which makes them more appealing. I would say the most interesting one would be the Bull Frog White Wasp Mining Co., for the name and the fact that it was issued in 1905 when Arizona was still a territory. I'm going to guess that would would bring $25 to $40 on eBay. The others are probably in the $15 to $30 range, but again, there might be a stock from a mine no one has seen which could bring far more.
