A New Publication "The Value of America's Great Fortunes"

We're pleased to announce the arrival of Professor Dr. Udo Hielscher's newly penned book "The Value of America's Great Fortunes - A U.S. Fortune Evaluation Index 1800-2000 Illustrated With Historic Securities". Published by the International Bond and Share Society, the book offers an interesting discussion of the value of many of America's great fortunes through his "Fortune Evaluation Index", a formulaic system of weighting fortunes based upon a series of calculations accounting for the value of the dollar and its purchasing power throughout the 200 year period. Securities signed by many of America's wealthy historical figures are pictured along with fine historical content on the individual and the company's history. This 96 page book offers up a fine introduction to collecting autographed securities along with a compelling argument for the ranking of America's great fortunes. Domestic Post paid.
