    Tombstone, Arizona: Rare Paper Token for Maison Doree Restaurant. A rare paper token, 2 5/8" x 1 3/8", for one meal at Tombstone's Maison Doree restaurant, circa 1883. Operated by Armand and Amelia Tuquet, The Maison Doree promoted its daily offering of fresh oysters and the fact that it hired only French cooks. Because they were cheaper to produce that than brass tokens, many Tombstone businesses used the paper versions, which are seldom seen in today's market. The back of the paper token has glue and backing residue, with glue residue touching small sections of the right hand and lower right hand corners. Otherwise this rare item in in good condition.
