Rare issue for the Ft. Bowie area in territorial Arizona. Ft. Bowie was established around 1876 to protect local settlers from Chiricahua Apache Indian raids. However, following the surrender of Geronimo the fort at Apache Pass was no longer needed because the American Indian Wars were now over. Residents of the fort area who remained after the closing established a small town closer to Wilcox and the Butterfield stage line. The Bowie Eating House is listed in Birts "Arizona Tokens" as operating around 1902. They issued tokens in 20, 15, 10, and 5 cent denominations. This four lobed scalloped 15 C token is listed as R8 (Very Rare with 7 - 12 known). There are only a total of 5 issuers for Bowie, none earlier than the Eating House, which probably served the rail line or stage coaches of the route between El Paso and Tucson.
