These Civil War Store Cards from Baltimore, Maryland are ascribed to the shop of F.X. Koehler.

In Fuld’s second edition, only two private tokens are identified with Baltimore, Maryland. In their third edition, almost 40 tokens are identified as being from Baltimore. Many of these are tokens re-categorized from other cities. I’ll be moving them around after I complete my work through of the second edition since many of these are currently slabbed under the second edition categorizations.
