      Before the GSE was established, there were at least two brokerage houses, NTHC and Merchant Bank. Trades were executed between these two Houses. They took your particulars and as shares became available. Actual floor trading was at Kingsway department store complex in very cramped quarters.

      There is a very good chance that one of these companies will the transactions in their records.

      They will documentation in the form of Probate of your grandfather's Will. If you have that it will make matters simpler.

      I hope this helps you. Good Luck.

    I'm still confused about preference shares. What is the current value of 5200 SCB preference shares?

      Preference shares are just like ordinary shares, save for their fixed but higher priority in terms of dividend payouts and liquidation; albeit - under normal circumstances - without voting rights. Re the value of 5200 shares, that would be 0.71 x 5200 = GHS 3,692.
