I recently bought some books and magazines and there was what appears to be a stock certificate in one of them; 8 shares of National Electric Power Company, from Feb 1928 (just before the crash). It says 6% preferred.

How does one go about determining if they are now a millionaire? I know the first step is to see if the company is still operating, or if it was sold and to what other company. Is the only value of this certificate the pictures of the two naked ladies?

I figured it might be too good to be true. Looks like Elsie Canon lost her $800 investment. And the signatures are in pencil; that can't be a good sign.
