  • Fixed Penalty Bonds are for documents whose value remains the same over time.
  • Open Penalty Bonds for documents whose market value fluctuates.

  • The most common types of lost instruments are preferred and common stock certificates, checks and money orders.

    Other examples of lost instruments are:

  • Membership Certificate
  • Cashier's Check
  • Money Order
  • Warehouse Receipt
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Certificate of Deposit
