Origin: These stock certificates were issued by the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad Company in the 1850's, when the U.S. was hungry for expansion and the railroads helped push the nation westward into the frontier. They were issued at the company's headquarters in New York City, and feature original signatures hand signed with iron gall ink.

The age of Manifest Destiny is typically said to have lasted from about 1812 to 1867, during which Americans widely held the belief that the nation was destined to expand over the entire North American continent. The United States pushed deeper into the western frontier, continuously growing until it acquired Alaska in the last major expansion of the era.

The stock certificate comes with a rigid archival document holder for preservation and handling. A Certificate of Authenticity is also included.

NOTE: This certificate has no value as a financial asset, and will not be honored by any extant company today.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.

Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.

While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.

History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.

No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
