In the book "Outsiders" the following sources were used and the prices in there went all the way back "Center for Research in Security Price" and "Computstat". Not sure if the CRSP is open to anyone but potentially gives you the information you need.

Norm- I believe the numbers are accurate.  I had them written in one of my old annual reports.  I hope it helps.

I have attached a gif from that website, just in case we lose the page for whatever reason.

 

Any body who invested  in 77 and held till 87 made a killing. Off course you could say that till to date. But that period seem to have seen the most rise in value.

Pre-1968 numbers will be average asking price from OTC tables in the last few days of the month. BRK switched to a regular fiscal year in 1967 so that's why earlier figures are from September.
