I have a old stock certificate that my great grandmother bought. It's for two shares from the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport National Bank, dated 1973. That bank has merged multiple times and is now part of Wells Fargo.

I wonder how this works and if the two shares are worth anything. Would it be worth my time to search and find out? Please let me know if you can help me figure this out.


If the bank was ultimately merged into Wells Fargo, then Wells Fargo Investor Relations office should be able to help you. Their phone number and e-mail address are at the bottom of their website.


Check the certificate to see if the Transfer agent's name is listed on it. Perhaps even the address. If so, contact them and see what those two shares represent today.

Plan B would be to see customer service at Wells Fargo and see if they can assist you in determining what, if anything, these shares are worth.
