    : Sounds good. I have a couple of friends who sit on eBay constantly looking for certificates. They've been successful, but they spend so much time looking because of the vast amount of transactions on eBay, I tease them of being "veg-eBay-tables."

Obviously, the more popular or older the ghost town (such as Virginia City, Bodie or Rhyolite, the more they will cost. Places that issued a ton of stock, certificates run much less due to their availability. Rare or very old stock will run much higher.



    : I don't personally collect, although I have a few from trades. Friends of mine do collect stock in earnest and have paid as little as 50 cents, as much as $500. Most seem to run between $10 and $100.
