Question
Gallahad Petroleum LTD 40 shares
Incorporated in British Columbia
Purchased in 1978. Registrar - Guaranty Trust Company of Canada

Can you tell me if this certificate has any value ?

Thanks for your help.

Answer
Al, from the information I have available, Gallahad merged with Backer Petroleum and shareholders received 3 shares of Backer for each share of Gallahad. Backer was acquired by Allied Oil & Gas in 2000 for $1.75 cash per share. The registered holder should have received a check for the shares at that time. If not, the money would have been turned over to the Government for safekeeping. You can search the lost property offices of many States and Provinces online at www.missingmoney.com. If you are the registered holder, you need to search each State and Province in which you lived from the day you acquired the stock until the takeover in 2000. Search using your name exactly as it appears on the certificate.
