Richard Borden (1795-1874), Manufacturer and Executive of great importance, he signs at the front as president of this Cape Cod Railroad Stock. Being so active in Fall River, one can only wonder if he was related to Lizzy Borden of Ax Murder fame? Certainly worthy of further research. Signature lightly pen cancelled. Rare!

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
