Featured token: New York City Transit Authority Subway Token, Large, with Cut-Out "Y"
These cufflinks are new.
These are the tokens that were used many years ago in NYC. Small tokens were first used in 1953 when they raised the subway fare from 10 cents to 15 cents. Because of the fare increase, they could no longer use a single dime in the turnstile. The small token was discontinued in about 1970, when the Transit Authority switched to a larger sized token. In 1970 when the large token (with Y cut out) was first used, the fare had increased to 30 cents. Large Y cut tokens were used until 1980. The cufflinks in this listing are made from the large Y-cut tokens in use from 1970-1980.
The token is brass and the cufflink backs are gold tone.
The diameter of each token is 23 mm.
Both tokens show "NEW YORK CITY TRANSIT AUTHORITY" and "NYC"
The underside shows "GOOD FOR ONE FARE"
There is a cut out in the center of the token, of the letter "Y"
The tokens have been made into cufflinks using high quality toggle backs, professionally soldered to the tokens. We use solder, not glue! We take the extra time to make quality, durable cufflinks so that they will look great for years to come.
I strive to have the best quality hand crafted cufflinks.
The condition of the tokens used will be consistent with the photo, but as with any hand crafted item, may vary slightly. Our cufflinks are made by hand in the U.S.A. The tokens are cleaned and polished, and the result is great looking cufflinks ! Slight differences in the details of the token add to the uniqueness of our cufflinks.
Warranty: 1 year. Any cufflink found to be defective within 1 year of purchase will be repaired or replaced.
We also offer a 7 day return privilege. We want you to be completely satisfied with your new cufflinks !
