About Old Shares

A share certificate is an 'evidence of title;' a document given to an investor as evidence of ownership of an amount of invested capital. It does not in itself prove ownership. Newcomers to scripophily often want to know the difference.
  • Shares are issued by businesses (usually companies)
  • Shares form part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his money only by selling to another investor.
  • Most shares earn dividends, at the business' discretion, depending on how well it has traded.,
  • A shareholder is a part-owner of the business.
