Marketing Ploy: PCGS should slab CU Stock Certificates.

10 posts in this topic

I think it would work. Make the Coin Universe stock certificates collectible.

Slab and grade them!

Wrap an American Flag around the holder and you've got a real winner.

Pat,

CU ( Communist Unlimited ) would never allow such a Marketing Ploy. Look how many people they have banned for use of freedom of speech on the forums. Just today someone came over here.

Your idea is funny!!

 

About 30 years ago I purchased 3 shares of Playboy stock to give to friends for Christmas because Playboy stock had a nude engraved on it. At the time, Playboy stock was selling for about $2.50 a share, so 3 shares were cheap. However, the certificate arrived after Christmas and it was 1 certificate good for 3 shares of stock rather than 3 separate certificates. But it had the nude on it! Well, I couldn't give the certificate away because it was too late and anyway I wanted 3 certificates. So, I hung onto it over the years. At some point in time, Playboy changed their stock so that the shares no longer had a nude on them. And, by so doing, they made my certiifcate a collectable! The last time I looked, a certificate with a nude on it was going for about $150...well above the value of 3 shares of Playboy, which today is $28.

Mark,

 

Do an E-Bay search for old stock certificates. You will find that many early certificates had scantily clad or nude women on them, if only allegorical representations. I believe that at one time, it was a requirement for the NYSE-listed stocks.
