Found this token from 1909 in a San Fran Park that has been pretty pounded.
Tried looking up any info on Marks Brothers to no avail...
Interesting cast method for a token - you can see the pour mark/stamp on the back. Its slightly bigger than a quarter.
   


This was from just outside another sf park...my first non American silver...Its from 1959.

I could only come up with very little info, as well. I included a pic of another token someone sold via an auction. It too says Marks Bros. and has Market St. on there, so, gotta be the same outfit. Might've been a corset manufacturer. Or, could it be possible Groucho was involved in the production of corset wear? Lol. Check out the link...
