FICO Strips

I don't know if this is the right place for this question but I will give it a shot. My grandfather bought a series 6 FICO strip in 1988 after he passed away my grandmother gave it to me and said that he bought it for me. The bank that he bought it from no longer exists so I took it to my bank and they really had no clue about it. I have tried doing some research online and really can not find much. Who do I turn to now to find out how to cash the FICO strip? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: FICO Strips

I'm not sure that FICO was even a public company in 1988.


A strip is related to a zero-coupon bond, right? (I'm incredibly rusty on this sort of thing.)
