I won't do this again

I will never buy another certificate that some knucklehead has put in a frame. This example wasn't at all easy to remove the glued down glass frame. When I finally removed the glass and lifted the certificate I didn't notice that the top two corners were also glued down. And as you can tell the corners decided to stay put. I tried to remove the corner piece but they were too far gone. Fortunately the certificate is not an expensive piece and professional repairing it is out of the question. So it goes down as a lesson learned.

A couple of Confederates

Added two Confederate railroad stocks. The South Side (Virginia) is one of the most common of Confederate railroad stocks. The Raleigh & Gaston (North Carolina) with out the $1,500,000 overprint is a little more rare. With two listed in Cox from the war.
For information on these companies and Confederate Railroads in general. I highly recommend Dave Brights great site csa-railroads.
