A Collectible Certificate from

 

SOCONY

MOBIL OIL

 

This is a $1,000.00 Bearer Bond

 

When issued in 1963 these Bonds were essentially the same as cash, because they could be redeemed by anyone who possessed them: hence the term "Bearer" Bond. 

 

And please Pardon the Pun (Blond and Bond), but it was just too good to resist.  And so is this Great Big Beautiful Bond!  It's a full 10 inches by 15 inches and I only show the top half because it's a Standard Long Bond.

The name is so well known that it hardly needs mentioning, but you might not know that "Socony" is an abbreviation for Standard Oil Company of New York, which resulted when Federal Antitrust Laws forced the Break-up of Rockefeller's Standard Oil in 1911.  The name "Mobil Oil" was registered as a Trademark by the same bunch in 1920.

You might be old enough to have seen their "Flying Horse" logo, which is just a very small part of this bond, but when I was growing up in the '50's - not too long before this bond was issued - I remember a Big Flashing Red Neon Sign where the Horse's Wings would move!!!

The "Blond" in question may not really be Blond, but she sure is Big and Beautiful.  And not quite so scantily clad as she looks from a distance.  (Did I hear someone from the Peanut Gallery mutter "Rats!"?)  Yes, she's modestly - if "gauzily" - draped.

You really need to see it Up Close !

This Bond is in Excellent

PRISTINE

Condition

CRISP AND CLEAN

and is EXACTLY the one you will receive.  You can pay a lot of money for this Certificate - and it's certain to increase in Collector's Value - but it's yours right now at the

LOW, BUY-IT-NOW PRICE of $19.99 !!!

The same certificate sells for a lot more than that elsewhere on line outside of eBay and for up to $40.00 at a specialty store in Manhattan.

[The Bond you receive is the one you see; it bears Registration Number 116769.  The colored dots you see in the area of the vignette are NOT pinholes but rather part of the normal printing process.  We do the same thing with our paper currency in order to prevent counterfeiting.  The first two pics are exactly the bond you receive, with the second pic showing the top portion of the bond.  The last three are stock images, with the large full pic from a similar bond of the same series, and the famous Mobil sign with the Flying Horse is from the back of the bond.  It has a couple of cancellation holes at the bottom, of course, because it became due in the '90's, but all the Top Portion is Completely Clean!!!]

WORLDWIDE SHIPPING

IS GENERALLY AVAILABLE BUT PAYPAL REQUIRES OVERSEAS BUYERS TO SHIP BY REGISTERED MAIL, WHICH USUALLY COSTS - INCLUDING SECURE PACKAGING - ABOUT $18.00 FOR ONE ITEM.  IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU PURCHASE SEVERAL ITEMS TO DEFRAY THE COST, BECAUSE THE REGISTRATION FEE IS CHARGED ONLY ONCE PER SHIPMENT.

THIS IS NOT MY POLICY, IT IS THEIRS.



IMPORTANT NOTE TO CANADIAN BUYERS: THE MAIL SERVICE IN CANADA HAS BECOME SO UNRELIABLE THAT PAYPAL REQUIRES REGISTERED MAIL FOR BUYERS AND SELLERS TO BE PROTECTED BY THEIR POLICY. SHIPPING TO CANADA IS NOW THE SAME AS FOR SHIPPING OVERSEAS. EBAY HAS NO OPTION FOR "REGISTERED MAIL" SO IT IS CALLED VARIOUSLY "EXPEDITED SHIPPING" OR "PRIORITY MAIL". I REGRET THIS CHANGE BUT IT IS NOT MY DECISION.


Shipping & payment

RECEIVE A 5% DISCOUNT
IF YOU PURCHASE $25 OR MORE
and 10% FOR $50 OR MORE 
(DOES NOT APPLY TO ITEMS ON SALE)
- CONTACT ME -


NOTE ALSO:

BECAUSE IT IS AN OPTION

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

(REGISTERED MAIL)

CAN NOT BE REFUNDED.


INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS

I WAS VERY SURPRISED TO DISCOVER THAT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RATES HAVE BEEN DOUBLED BY THE US POSTAL SERVICE.  THE COST OF REGISTERED MAIL HAS REMAINED THE SAME AT $12.95, BUT THE TOTAL COST HAS NOW JUMPED FROM $18.00 TO ABOUT $25.00!!!!  I FIND THIS APPALLING - AND YOU PROBABLY DO AS WELL - BUT IT IS TOTALLY BEYOND MY CONTROL.  EBAY AND PAYPAL STILL REQUIRE REGISTERED MAIL IN ORDER FOR YOU AND ME TO BE COVERED BY THEIR BUYER AND SELLER PROTECTION PLANS.

I APOLOGIZE SINCERELY FOR THIS EXTRA COST.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU WANT TO BEAR THAT COST AND ALSO REMEMBER THAT IT IS ONLY CHARGED ONCE PER SHIPMENT.  SO IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER BUYING MORE THAN ONE ITEM TO HELP DEFRAY THE COST.

THANK YOU!!!
