Origin: The United States Lines Company was originally created in 1921 by the U.S. government in order to operate German ocean liners seized by the United States during World War I. Initially a government run operation, all the ships were owned by the United States Shipping Board and the finances were overseen by the Emergency Fleet Corporation

During World War II, the company was infiltrated by German agents of the Duquesne Spy Ring. These agents worked as crew members aboard the SS America, and passed along information about U.S. defense preparations near the Panama Canal. In total, 31 German agents of the Duquesne Spy Ring would be uncovered by the FBI in the largest espionage conviction in U.S. history.

The company was eventually sold into private hands, and continued running passenger voyages until 1969 and transatlantic shipping routes until 1989.

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.
