Scripophily Is New

While some people began collecting old bonds and shares as early as the 1930s, scripophily itself is relatively new. In 1961, Confederate and Southern States bonds were catalogued for Civil War enthusiasts, and in 1975-76 researchers in Germany showed that fascinating unredeemed Imperial Russian and Chinese bonds could be collected.

Compared with coins (a hobby for more than 400 years) and paper money and stamps (popular for more than a century and a half) bond and share collecting is very new indeed.
