Seasoned Securities

(We recommend this as work of authority.)

Securities of recognized merit and of long standing, issued by corporations engaged in the production of basic staples, whose officers are skilled in operating and financial management, whose properties and net assets leave a safe equity for securities, and whose earnings have been sufficiently stable to ensure interest payments and dividend disbursements over a long period of time.  The chief significance of this term is to indicate that such securities are subject to a smaller price fluctuation range than other securities and are consequently more satisfactory for investment and collateral purposes.
