    Castenholz & Stittgen Good For 5c at the Bar. I'm guessing this is from Milwaukee, but can't find any specific info. Does anyone know? Thanks

    In 1874, the Brunswick company merged with competitor Great Western Billiard Manufactory owned by Julius Balke to become the J. M. Brunswick & Balke Company. It was incorporated in 1879 with a capital stock of $275,000, the same year it merged with another competitor, H. W. Collender Company of New York (founded by Hugh W. Collender), to acquire Collender's patented billiard cushions. In 1884, the partners formed the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company (or B.B.C. Company for short[3]) with capital of $1.5 million.

    The company expanded into making a number of other products. Large ornate neo-classical style bars for saloons were a popular product.

    You are correct. 1889 Milwaukee City Directory lists the Henry Castenholz & William Stittgen saloon and restaurant at 171 2nd street. Please post it on tokencatalog and if you are interested in selling or trading, I have a friend who specializes in collecting Milwaukee tokens.

    Those are nice tokens. When you put their pool tables in your saloon, they issued tokens for you to pass out. I have found 5 of the same token with different saloon names on all of them.
