NY Transit Token Necklaces
This is the perfect nostalgic New York City Subway memorabilia!
This small token, measuring 5/8″ in diameter, was introduced in 1953. At that time, train fare was 15 cents. This tiny coin hangs on a vintage brass 20″ chain. In 1970, the price to ride rose to 30 cents, and a new, bigger token was introduced. Metrocards replaced brass subway tokens for good in 2003. Now, these pieces of NYC history are mostly melted down for scrap metal.
