My dad was an executive in the company, so though I was not an insider, he was. They are marked as restricted in my account, but what I have been repeatedly told is that they are not actually restricted shares. Dad is no longer an executive there -- he's been retired for more than 10 years.

Sounds like they were at least restricted at one time. Whether there would be an expiration on that, I don't know. It would probably be specified on the share certificate. If they are restricted, then I believe any sale needs to be signed off on by the lawyers for the company. As I said, ours has all been well-handled by our investment advisors.

It's very surprising that Fidelity is having so much trouble with this. It should be just a matter of talking to the right person.
