These Civil War Store Cards from Louisville, Kentucky are ascribed to various shops. Originally, these were broken into KY 510A and KY 510B under Fuld’s Second Edition. Later, these are broken into individual assignments starting with KY 510C. I’ll come back and update this when I complete the rest as I am using Fuld’s Second Edition to assign most of these.
