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.

Here are a couple others. A $1 million dollar bond from National Steel and a $2 million bond from American Airlines.

This one I've posted elsewhere. It's a specimen of a $14.5 million bond. Only one issued example exists and it's possible this specimen is also unique.

Here's a very similar specimen bond that sold this week on Ebay for a bit more than I was willing to pay. Bet there's another interesting story behind it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/DE-Levin-T...047675.l2557
