These simple, yet elegant necklaces are made from authentic Rochester transit tokens. These tokens have become extremely rare in the last few years. The large bronze ones used for the sibway back in the early 1900's are the most sought after and difficult to locate.

The silver toned token was first issued by Rochester Transit Corporation in 1948 and
were used in the 40's. 50's, and 60's for the RTS bus and for the subway through 5/30/56 when it officially closed.
They are 16mm in diameter, white metal, copper-plated

The larger bronze one is the coveted Rochester subway token (1909-1931)
Substitute for One Cash Fare on all Rochester City Lines.
They are a little larger than the silver colored ones. These measure in at 23mm in diameter.
***I have very few of these little slices of local history in stock. I'm always on the lookout for these tokens and the last time I was able to find any was almost a year ago...in Ohio. They just don't exist anymore If you love Rochester, get one now before they disappear for good***

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.
