NYC Transit small token earrings w colored crystals

These beautiful earrings were coaxed from Genuine Circulated Small New York City Transit tokens. These tokens are the oldest of the bunch used from the 1950's to 1970. These are on non alergenic surgical stainless steel ear wires amd stainless steel jump ring The first mass-produced token to be put into use was coined in 1953 when the fare was fifteen cents. This version was used until 1970, by which point the fare was raised to twenty cents. In the subway's infancy, it only cost five cents to get on a train, in the pre-token days you would just insert a nickel to pass through. In 1948 the fare was raised to ten cents, so the New York City Transit authority re-outfitted the turnstiles to accept dimes. It wasn't until the city increased the fare to fifteen cents that they encountered a problem. The lack of a fifteen cent coin led to the creation of the subway token. The 1970 token was designed to be larger than its 1953 counterpart. The release of the 1970 token was met with a fare increase to thirty cents. By the end of the decade the far went up to fifty cents. I always use the best materials available, including the used tokens, please be aware as they are circulated tokens they may have some wear marks but i pick out the best available for you. the photos are aproximatly repre...

Tokens and Icons Subway Token Cufflinks (New York)

Tokens and Icons Subway Token Cufflinks (New

Tokens & Icons was founded with the New York Transit Token Cuff Links in 1991 when Ward Wallau, the founder, was approved for a license with the New York City Transit Authority . This occurred eleven years after he first approached them in 1980 when they filled in the "Y" of the quarter-sized "Y-cut" subway token. While he understood that businesses need to find ways to save money, Ward wanted to prove to the NYCTA that by filling in the "Y," they were dispensing of something truly unique and beloved to the city and its riders. He purchased these older tokens whenever he saw them sitting on the front ledge of an operator's booth and he eventually amassed 100. Though not a cuff link aficionado, Ward thought this format might be a logical way to reincorporate the tokens into New York's daily life and, of course, prove that the "Y-cut" token had more life to it.

From a Nickel to a Token: The Journey from Board of Transportation to MTA

From a Nickel to a Token: The Journey

Streetcars “are as dead as sailing ships,” said Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in a radio speech, two days before Madison Avenue’s streetcars yielded to buses. LaGuardia was determined to eliminate streetcars, demolish pre-1900 elevated lines, and unify the subway system, a goal that became reality in 1940 when the separate IRT, BMT, and IND became one giant system under full public control.In this fascinating micro-history of New York’s transit system, Andrew Sparberg examines twenty specific events between 1940 and 1968, book ended by subway unification and the MTA’s creation. From a Nickel to a Token depicts a potpourri of well-remembered, partially forgotten, and totally obscure happenings drawn from the historical tapestry of New York mass transit. Sparberg deftly captures five boroughs of grit, chaos, and emotion grappling with a massive and unwieldy transit system.During these decades, the system morphed into today’s familiar network. The public sector absorbed most private surface lines operating within the five boroughs, and buses completely replaced streetcars. Elevated lines were demolished, replaced by subways or, along Manhattan’s Third Avenue, not at all. Beyond the unification of the IND, IRT, and BMT, strategic track connections were built between lines to...
