ORIENTAL SALOON (below: L.H. MOISE S. F.; Rx: GOOD FOR 1 DRINK
Spooner hasn't listed this one in his 2010 catalog, stay tuned for more info from his forthcoming update. The Oriental has been characterized as "a regular slaughterhouse." Read and visit the link below.
The Oriental Saloon opened on July 22, 1880, issuing in the advent of one of Tombstone's two fanciest bars. Only the exotic Crystal Palace would provide any measurable amount of competition. In February 1881 Luke Short, who had an interest in the gambling concession at the Oriental, was working his table. Charlie Storms, a professional gambler with a less-than-favorable opinion of the table operator, had apparently been making disparaging statements directed toward Short. After simmering for several hours, the confrontation erupted outside of the Oriental on Allen Street. Both grappled with pulled pistols, but Short succeeded in leveling his piece toward his opponents' heart and fired twice. Storms quickly expired but not before getting off one round, but without effect. Parsons, who arrived at the scene just after the first shots were fired, wryly noted that "the faro games went right on as though nothing had happened." [excerpt from the Tombstone Times by Ray Madzia]. To read his full interesting history please visit this: [ link ]
The die-sinking firm of L. H. Moise was founded in 1893 and Moise purchased the older C.A. Klinker & Co. in 1897. Although they became the Moise - Klinker Co. in 1898, they produced pieces under their individual names until 1904. This firm was in operation out of San Francisco CA.
