ailroad certificate collectors world-wide have known of the Ken Prag Collection for decades R– not just one decade, but four. For about four decades, Prag was the major stock certificate dealer in America. Along the way, he collected one each of virtually every railroad stock he came across (and mining and other categories as well). He collected every form of railroad certificate, from certificate #1, usually attributed to the “founder” of the railroad, to each variant of printed certificate. He also collected special unissued certificates, which today may represent the only known example of some of the more obscure railroads. The collection contains thousands of certificates. It represents a unique opportunity to obtain rare pieces, as a collection of this stature has never before hit the marketplace. We have chosen to list the certificates for auction over the next approximate year in our auctions in a format that parallels our friend Terry Cox’s book on Railroad Stocks (and his new book coming out too!). They will be listed in alphabetical order by the name of the rail line, and not listed in geographic format, since most rails travel through many states. This booklet offers glimpses of the variety of certificates, their fabulous vignettes, art, form, and even rare autographs. The revenue imprinted pieces will all be offered in a single sale, and one rare example is shown in this booklet. We know you’ll enjoy this opportunity to make you’re collection the best it can be. Be sure to log into our auctions through They are currently planned for October, 2018, December 2018, February 2019.
