PONY SALOON J.H. MARRS PROP. TOMBSTONE, ARIZ.; Rx: GOOD FOR A SMILE, listed as rarity R9.
James H. Marrs, was a frontiersman, proprietor, entrepreneur and one of the town's very first settlers.
Born on August 15, 1856 in Beckwith, Fayette County, West Virginia "Jim" as he preferred to be called was the son of shoemaker James J. and his wife Mildred (Rhodes) Marrs. Jim left West Virginia as a young boy to farm in Missouri until 1878 when he headed to the gold country of Leadville, Colorado. But his stay was short; after eight months he went to Arizona Territory and in 1879 settled in Tombstone's silver camp.
This token is listed in Birt and Spooner as being issued between 1900 - 1914. While many of the Marrs pieces are One Bit tokens Good For 12 1/2 cents in Trade, this one is only "Good For a Smile." Made of brass, it has an 8 lobed scalloped edge. Rarity for this token in Birt & Spooner is R8, with 7 -12 known. Fortunately, there is a lot of information about this interesting Tombstone pioneer and you can read it all at this link to the "Tombstone Times" (still published today with a digital subscription), it was written by Karen Mazzeo - [ link ]
