Scott,

Certificates of Durant Motor Company stock are still around and sold in places like eBay, Scripophily.com and club members.

Hi All.....

Back in the days of the Durant Family Registry, Jeff Gillis reproduced the Durant stock certificates. They had the members name and the number of shares reflected the number of Durant products owned. I've got my original and some others.

Hi George;
I've seen them on Ebay from between $5.00 and $25.00 depending on year and condition. But like anything it is what someone is willing to pay for it. I think I bought several of mine for $5.00 each at one time.

there is no stock value if that is your question. The only value is what someone wants to pay to own a piece of paper.

Like anything else in life, someone's junk is another persons treasure.

I am sure that if you put it on EBay you could sell it for something.

Or, you can donate the certificates to the Durant Museum, and I am sure that Mike Linthicum will be more than happy to accept the donation.

Hi Catherine;
As Charlie Spitz had said in the previous post on this, they do come up for sale quite often on EBAY for around $25.00 or less. You can keep your stock certificate as a fond family keepsake, sell it on EBAY, or donate it to the Durant Motors Automobile Museum. If you'd like to donate it, then just email me and I'll let you know how this can be done.

Thank you, Mike! By the way, where is the Durant museum?

Re: Certificate of stock in the Durant Motor Co.

Hi Catherine;
Right now the Durant Museum is virtual, meaning that it is located only on the Internet and I manage it from my office. The DMAC is moving strongly toward establishing a "brick and mortar" physical museum to house a collection of vehicles and memorabilia honoring William C. Durant and all the cars associated with him. Progress is being made and hopefully in the next 3 or so years we will break ground. Very exciting times for the DMAC!

Have stocks dated 1925 from my Gramps. Do they have any value should I frame them or give them to the grandkids or sell and retire?

They are nice pieces of art and a conversation piece. Since Durant Motors Inc is no more and has not been for many many many years the value is in collecting. These usually go for about $25 on Ebay give or take.
