Need oldest quote information ever seen !

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I am looking for the oldest quote data you know of.

    I have access to Dow Jones Index data back in the 1920's, but I am looking for older data.

    Here is what I need:

    - Can be any instrument.
    Shares, currency or bond-type, or agricultural commodities

    - Data should at least contain 200
    points (typically days, means I need continous data for at least 200 days)

    - Can be any human - readable format
    I will convert it myself.

    Ideally, it would be some commodity or Fugger type stuff from the 16th or 17th century.

    If you have such data or a link,
    please post it.

    Thanks a lot.

    Purpose: Educational, I am just trying to help out a buddy.
  2. Ok. But it costs. More preferrably would be a free source.

    Data for one single instrument is just fine.
