You are offerding on a BEAUTIFUL, RARE, AND EARLY(believe 1875 to 1885 era) "good for" style trade token which has "THE J.M. BRUNSWICK & BALKE CO'S" PICTORIALCHECK actually is "GOOD FOR 5c IN TRADE" used by a SALOON KEEPER / HOTEL SALOON / LIVERY & HOTEL business run by proprietor "J. PRESTON", which at one time was located in old downtown SHELL ROCK, IOWA and LANESBOROUGH, MINNESOTA and LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN. (documented merchant was in 3 towns)
This is a gorgeous early J.M. Brunswick & Balke billiard reversetoken.This token is listed on the find tokencatalog website, and this merchant seems to have operated in the 1875-1880 timeframe in 3 towns as follows:
1) Shell Rock Iowa: A small town population 1296 today, located in Butler County. Julius Preston is listed in 1880 directories as Saloon Keeper in Shell Rock.
2) Lanesborough, Minnesota: A small town, pop 750 today, located in Fillmore Co. Old directory data shows JH Preston ran a Livery / Hotel business in 1875.
3) La Crosse, Wisconsin: Located in La Crosse County Wi, and census data shows that Julius Preston ran a Hotel and Livery business
This is a token I know very little about. I do not own any exonumia books from above mentioned states. Came out of a small collection of trade tokens from this region. Believe this is RARE and EARLY.

Trade token is brass, round, about 25mm in diameter, and it displays very nicely.(please see pictures in gallery) Token has not been cleaned in any way.
