ICF Financial History Collection

origins of value

Did you know that the ICF collects historical bonds, securities, financial instruments, and documents related to the history of financial markets?  The ICF has collected a number of items over the years and curates them on the Origins of Value virtual museum website.  Search our extensive database here for some interesting finds.

Every Friday we will tweet a photo of a different bond, security, financial instrument, or document related to the history of financial markets.  Follow us on Twitter @YaleICF and check out our hashtag #ICF_FinancialHistoryFriday
