One of my little sub-collections is stocks and bonds which have (or had) a face value of more than $1 million. Surprisingly few collectors are interested in high denomination material and most of them are in Europe. So every so often I will pick up a big ticket item for a good price.
I'll share a couple now and others when I have time. Here's a $14 million bond from the Chrysler Financial Corp.
Here is just shy of a million shares of West Coast Energy, so this certificate would have been worth just over $19.5 million on Sept. 3, 1997, at the closing bell.
