Schwaab Stamp & Seal Co - A Catalog of Obsolete Dies
Long time token collector, Tom Casper, has written a book on the Schwaab Stamp & Seal Co. of Milwaukee, WI. The company was a major manufacturer of tokens, medals, and badges. The company was started in 1881 and they produced these pieces until the mid-twentieth century.
The book provides a history of the company as well as photos of 800+ Schwaab dies. Some of these dies produced exonumia not seen yet in the marketplace. The dies are in categories of Masonic Tokens, Trade Tokens, Transportation Tokens, Fraternal Organizations, and Miscellaneous Items. The dies struck pieces from 45 different states.
