Thanks for all your hard work. Your expertise is valuable and my ignorance is palpable.
I am not even sure it was A.G. Edwards. After 25+ yrs. my memory is really foggy. I'm sure that you have addressed that possibility somewhere within your answer, but I can't determine where that is.
Unfortunately, you are dealing with a 1st graders mentality concerning stocks, stock market, transfers and transfer agents.
I don't have a clue as to a starting point.
If you could, please take me step by step in this process.
BotXXXXX XXXXXne, I don't know if
A.G. Edwards has closed it's doors or is still a viable brokerage (I know I could look that up) or even if it was them. But if the brokerage suddenly disappears and the broker
disappears and the stock certificates are with them, can Echo bay
also disappear with no notification whatever to the stockholder. And is that stock, where ever it went, still viable.
