I am looking for a historical stock price. My question gets tricky because the company has gone out of business. The company is Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company (symbol: CIC; was listed on the NYSE) and the date I need the closing price for is March 22, 1977.

Grace803 -- Your problem is a common one, since most of the popular stock listing sites (like BigCharts.com and Yahoo! Finance) only go back about 15 years -- and de-list companies that have disappeared from the stock exchanges. The best sources for old stock quotes are microfilm versions of the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times online. The historical NY Times collection is available via Proquest, a fee-based service that's provided for free at major public libraries. That's where the following information about Continental Illinois Corp. comes from -- the Wednesday, March 23, 1977 NY Times (with March 22's closing prices): Continental close: 48 1/2, -3/4 High: 49 1/4 Low: 48 1/2 1977 range: 48 1/4 -- 54 7/8 There were 17,700 shares traded that day.
