Rochester Transit Token

$30.00

This simple, yet elegant necklace is made from an authentic Rochester transit token. These tokens have become extremely rare and have been known to sell for upwards of $50 each on exonumia collector's sites.

The silver toned token was first issued by Rochester Transit Corporation in 1948 and were sold 11 for 50¢. (A city bus ride today costs $1 every time you get on a bus, including “transfers”) These tokens were good for one city fare on all bus and trolley lines (including the Rochester Subway). They are 16mm in diameter, white metal, copper-plated

The larger bronze one is a Rochester railway token (1909-1931)
Substitute for One Cash Fare on all Rochester City Lines (including the Rochester Subway). First issued 1909. They are a little larger than the silver colored ones. These measure in at 23mm in diameter.

If you would prefer a hole not be drilled into the *silver colored* token, please leave a note at check-out and I will comply.
