  • Notes 
    • August Fuchs, King Street. - When Berlin was a sparsely inhabited hamlet, the present proprietor of the Keystone Coin Jewellery store on King Street established the business. That was 40 years ago, and he had a very successful career. The premises occupied are 13x48 feet in dimensions, and handsomely fitted up with elaborate glass show cases, where a large and elegant stock of jewellery and silverware is displayed to advantage. Mr. Fuch make a specialty of the Rockford and Columbus watches: they are certainly the best American watches made. In cases, the Keystone coin silver watch case of which the centre, back, cap and bezel are made complete of one solid, seamless piece of coin silver without a particle of solder. This is certainly the best case in the market to-day. Mr. Fuchs gives employment to four competent and skillful workmen. He is a native of Baden, Germany, and was a member of the Town Council here for years. He is thoroughly practical  working jewellery, understanding all its branches and makes a particular branch of watch repairing. He is gentleman highly honored and respected in the community.1a
