SUMMERFIELD & PECK - BLACK DIAMOND - ARIZONA; Rx: GOOD FOR 1 DRINK. It's listed as a rarity R8 and is from 1903 during Territorial times.
This is the only token from Black Diamond, a Ghost Town that hosts the remains of the Black Diamond Mine. The Black Diamond Mine was discovered in 1880. Eventually there was a settlement of about 100 people and a post office was established on February 12, 1902, and a stage station was founded. Named for a mine carrying a black mineral which the miners called "Black Diamond", it was a silver and copper mine. The post office closed in 1908. Read and see more at this [ link ]
The Black Diamond Mine, discovered on its southeast slope by prospector Albert George in 1880. The name Black Diamond was a reference to its zinc ore that resembled black diamonds. George worked his claim for several years, before being killed by Apaches at Black Diamond Spring in early 1883. The mine was relocated in 1891 by several businessmen from Tombstone, who, after some exploratory work, uncovered a fortune in copper and silver ore. The mine slowly developed into a major operation in the following years, eventually spawning the town of Black Diamond, a smelter to process the mine's ore, an aerial tramway to haul the ore to the smelter, and several thousand feet of underground tunnels. At one point some two hundred miners were employed, and a hotel and post office were in operation. [HikeArizona.com]
