Standard Oil Trust was forced to dissolve due to violations of the Sherman Antitrust Act due to being accused of being an illegal monopoly.

Scripophily.com Offers Original Standard Oil Trust Stock Certificates Hand Signed by John. D. Rockefeller and Henry Flagler”

— Bob Kerstein, Founder Scripophily.com

FAIRFAX, VA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Scripophily.com ®, the Internet’s largest buyer and seller of collectible stock and bond certificates, has seen considerable interest in the acquisition of Standard Oil Trust stock certificates signed by John D. Rockefeller and Henry Flagler.

The Standard Oil Trust stock certificates were issued in 1882 and were printed by the Franklin Bank Note Company. The certificate was hand signed by John. D. Rockefeller, Henry Flagler and Jabez Abel Bostwick and is over 139 years old.

"The Standard Oil Trust began in 1882 by merging all of John. D. Rockefeller's oil properties and had an initial capital of $70 million. There were originally forty-two certificate holders, or owners, in the trust. After ten years the trust was dissolved by a court decision in Ohio due to violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act which was an attempt to restrain the power of trusts with respect to restraint of trade or commerce." according to Bob Kerstein, CEO Scripophily.com.

Standard Oil Trust lost a Sherman-related lawsuit in Ohio in 1892, but it was later able to incorporate in New Jersey as a holding company when New Jersey had adopted a law that permitted a parent company to own the stock of other companies. It is estimated that Standard Oil owned three-fourths of the petroleum business in the U.S. in the 1890s.

Rockefeller held the title of president of Standard Oil until 1911, but he retired from active leadership of the company in 1896. In 1911 the U.S. Supreme Court found the Standard Oil trust to be in violation of the anti-trust laws and ordered the dissolution of the parent New Jersey corporation. The thirty-eight companies which it then controlled were separated into individual firms.

Some of these spin off companies included:

Standard Oil of New Jersey (SONJ) – or Esso (S.O.) – renamed Exxon, now part of ExxonMobil. Standard Trust companies Carter Oil, Imperial Oil (Canada), and Standard of Louisiana were kept as part of Standard Oil of New Jersey after the breakup.
Standard Oil of New York – or Socony, merged with Vacuum – renamed Mobil, now part of ExxonMobil.
Standard Oil of California – or Socal – renamed Chevron, became ChevronTexaco, but returned to Chevron.
Standard Oil of Indiana – or Stanolind, renamed Amoco (American Oil Co.) – now part of BP.
Standard's Atlantic and the independent company Richfield merged to form Atlantic Richfield or ARCO, recently part of BP but has since been sold to a Japanese company. Atlantic operations were spun off and bought by Sunoco.
Standard Oil of Kentucky – or Kyso was acquired by Standard Oil of California – currently Chevron.
Standard Oil of Ohio – or Sohio, acquired by BP in 1987.
The Ohio Oil Company – or The Ohio, and marketed gasoline under the Marathon name. The company is now known as Marathon Petroleum, and was often a rival with the in-state Standard spinoff, Sohio.

Other Standard Oil spin-offs:
Standard Oil of Iowa – pre-1911 – became Standard Oil of California.
Standard Oil of Minnesota – pre-1911 – bought by Standard Oil of Indiana.
Standard Oil of Illinois – pre-1911 – bought by Standard Oil of Indiana.
Standard Oil of Kansas – refining only, eventually bought by Indiana Standard.
Standard Oil of Missouri – pre-1911 – dissolved.
Standard Oil of Louisiana – always owned by Standard Oil of New Jersey (now ExxonMobil).
Standard Oil of Brazil – always owned by Standard Oil of New Jersey (now ExxonMobil).

Other companies divested in the 1911 breakup:
Anglo-American Oil Co. – acquired by Jersey Standard in 1930, now Esso UK.
Buckeye Pipe Line Co.
Borne-Scrymser Co. (chemicals)
Chesebrough Manufacturing (acquired by Unilever)
Colonial Oil.
Crescent Pipeline Co.
Cumberland Pipe Line Co.
Eureka Pipe Line Co.
Galena-Signal Oil Co.
Indiana Pipe Line Co.
National Transit Co.
New York Transit Co.
Northern Pipe Line Co.
Prairie Oil & Gas.
Solar Refining.
Southern Pipe Line Co.
South Penn Oil Co. – eventually became Pennzoil, now part of Shell.
Southwest Pennsylvania Pipe Line Co.
Swan and Finch.
Union Tank Lines.
Washington Oil Co.
Waters-Pierce.

Stock certificates are collected and given as gifts because of their historical significance, beauty and artwork, autographs, notoriety, as well as many other factors. The supply of new certificates reaching the collector market has been substantially reduced due to changes in state laws and stock exchanges rules. Many companies are no longer required to issue physical stock and bond certificates, a process called “dematerialization.”

Scripophily (scrip-ah-fil-ly) is the name of the hobby of collecting old stock and bond certificates. Certificate values range from a few dollars to more than $500,000 for the most unique and rare items. Tens of thousands of Scripophily buyers worldwide include casual collectors, corporate archives, business executives, museums and serious collectors. Due to the computer age, more and more stock and bonds are issued electronically which means fewer paper certificates are being issued. As a result, demand for paper certificates is increasing while supply is decreasing.

Nordöstra, Monumental Work

Marceau interviewed in his workshop on Nordöstra.

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The world of Art

The Montreal NON-STANDARD painter and sculptor Stéphane MARCEAU told us about his new sales for more than $27 million to investors in the city of Abu Dhabi. The sale took place during a silent, invitation-only auction for hand-picked investors. The gigantic works consisted of encaustic, salt and gold relating to the exchange of wealth between peoples from the beginning of civilizations. Two other acquisitions of works were made by Montreal buyers for more than half a million dollars.

The work of setting up on site the monument titled Nordöstra, to La Maison Natale de Louis-Fréchette in Levis, on which the artist has been working for nearly four years, began on May 30, 2021 and will continue for three consecutive months. The artist MARCEAU is delighted with the arrival of Caroline Bouffard as project manager both for her personal and professional qualities. This work is genius in its entirety, made entirely by the artist, even the construction work on the site is prepared by him. He will demonstrate his know-how by wearing several hats throughout the preparation and fabrication of the work.

Built by Trevor Woodland, the Telecaster-style guitar incorporates the design features of Mike Meier’s book JoinWith.Me, including the symbolic “Creature.”

There were quite a few variables to work out but I think it all came together quite well. For example, the pick-ups are the ‘hot’ Fralin Blues pickups, which sound best with 500k pods…”

— Trevor Woodland, luthier, Vigilant Guitars

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vigilant Guitars, operated by guitar builder Trevor Woodland in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, has built yet another a special custom guitar, this time based on a published book.

The recently published sci-fi book JoinWith.Me by Mike Meier is based on an award-winning screenplay of the same name. In brief, the storyline is: In the year 2032, Sam Vanderpool lives a lonely existence with a menial job in an urban dystopia that is impersonal and dominated by technology. Sam is jolted from his routine when an ad appears on his computer screen that takes him to a website called JoinWith.Me. The site offers counseling for the lonely, and Sam decides to log on…

It turns out the author Mike Meier is also an avid guitar player. So Trevor Woodland designed and built a guitar that reflects the book’s design. The most distinctive feature is the “glow-in-the-dark” epoxy for the fret markers. Trevor explains how he created this totally unique design: “I made the fretmarkers with CNC (computer numerical controlled) machinery that cut the design into the fretboard, and then filled it with epoxy resin that contains ‘glow-in-the-dark’ pigments.” Trevor adds that, “To charge the epoxy, natural light works but a small UV pen also charges it quite fast.”

The guitar includes the symbol of the story’s antagonist, the “Creature” from the cover of the book, on the 12th fret. The Creature also appears on the custom-made neck plate on the back.

How did the guitar turn out? Notes Trevor, “There were quite a few variables to work out but I think it all came together quite well. For example, the pick-ups are the ‘hot’ Fralin Blues pickups, which sound best with 500k pods. Thus, I had to rebuild the control plate so that the pick-ups sound their best.”

Mike Meier concludes that their cooperation has produced a truly outstanding guitar. “Trevor’s hands-on experience has turned the guitar into an heirloom. I have never seen a more beautiful and more functional Telecaster guitar.”

About Vigilant Guitars

Trevor Woodland completed intensive workshops with the Summit School of Guitar Building and worked under Steve Mason and Mathew Dolmage; two Vancouver Island based guitar technicians and performers. When he established Vigilant Guitars in 2015, his passions and profession finally merged. He now builds guitars full-time under the name Vigilant Guitars in Victoria, BC.
