    History on Schreiber:
    George Christian Schreiber, general merchant and jeweler, of Lincoln, was born in Schmalkalden, Germany, June 29, 1839.
    His father Andrew Federick, and grandfather were also jewelers. When George was 15 years old he started learning the jewelers trade.
    He came to America in 1860, first in Olean, New York and worked as a watch repairman until March 1861. Fast forward, in 1866 he went to Saint Louis, Missouri and opened a jewelry store. In 1867 he moved his jewelry business to Lincoln and started making watches, except for cases (watch movements only). In 1872 he added toys & notions to his jewelry business and soon after added sewing machines and musical instruments. In 1878 he discontinued the sewing machines & musical instruments and added dry goods and clothing and continued this until he retired.
    Thanks for stopping by,

      Another nice trade card. Quite unique that is also a lottery ticket. Nice find.
      I collect trade cards as well including early DuPont advertising cards.
      Thanks for posting.

      Thanks buckethead for the comments & appreciation. I've always wondered what it cost to enter this lottery, considering the $600.00 value in 1883.
