OB: THE SCHLEY - JOS. SCHWARTNER (sic) - PROP. - WILLCOX, ARIZ.; Rx: GOOD FOR - 12 1/2 CENTS - ONE DRINK
This token is an 8 scalloped aluminum token listed as Rarity R8 (7 - 12 known). Josef Schwertner operated this Saloon between 1897 and 1905.
The Saloon or Bar was owned by a man named Schwertner, so the person taking the token order or the die sinker misspelled the proprietor's name. In any case the building that housed this saloon between 1897 and 1919 is still in existence and is the home of a museum. See more below.
The Rex Allen Arizona Cowboy Museum in located on Railroad Avenue. Rex Allen was born in Willcox in 1920 and raised here to young manhood. Stardom beckoned, and although Rex found fame in music, movies and television, he never forgot his roots; and the town never forgot him. Since 1951, Willcox has had an annual Rex Allen Days celebration, with parades, rodeos, stage shows.
During Rex Allen Days in 1989 Willcox opened the Rex Allen Arizona Cowboy Museum. The museum is divided into two parts. The first section illustrates the life history of Rex Allen, starting with homesteading and ranch life in Willcox. It follows him through radio days at WLS in Chicago; his wife and children, movies, television and public appearances. Rex starred in 19 movies for Republic Pictures between 1950 and 1954, and is considered the last of the Silver Screen Cowboys.
The second half of the museum contains the Willcox Cowboy Hall of Fame which pays tribute to respected individuals in the area's cattle industry. The Museum is located in one of Willcox's oldest commercial buildings constructed in the early 1890's of adobe, it was purchased in 1897 by Josef Schwertner and operated as the Schley Saloon from 1897-1919. The facade of the building has been restored to its original appearance. [From: Arizona Ghost Town Trails.com]
