White Star Line Astor Stock Certificate

RMS Titanic, 1931, Tom Rudderham Collection
Here is a beautiful and historically important stock certificate from the White Star Line.
One of Titanic’s most famous passengers was John Jacob “Jack” Astor IV. Astor was the richest passenger aboard the RMS Titanic, and thought to be the richest person in the world at that time. This certificate was issued to John’s eldest son, Vincent Astor, in 1931, demonstrating that the Astor family continued to invest in the White Star Line, nearly 20 years after the Titanic’s disaster.
