capitalist talismans, stock certificates, took a 70 year vacation during
communism, when the state owned everything. Pre-revolutionary share
certificates were sort of French looking. Post-communist certificates
began to be issued before the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Lots
of scammy shares were around at first, lots of schemes launched and sank.
Things have perhaps calmed down a bit by now.
