1, The 2% is for the Lost Instrument Bond. Try a different transfer agent because often this is free.
2. If you remember the price, and can't verify it, how can the IRS refute it? Would they?
3. Try asking CitiGroup why they didn't issue you a certificate for the ones you surrendered years ago. They know your current address and that you're a stockholder.
#1 and #3 above are to save the 2%, which may be too late. Ed
