We bought pounds of old NYC transit tokens from the MTA vaults, searching specially for ones with the iconic center pentagon and the cut-out "Y". The smaller Y token, worth 15 cents, was introduced in 1953. In 1970, the price of a ride rose to 30 cents, and a new, bigger Y token was released.  Today metrocards have replaced tokens altogether, but I still remember when my dad carried a roll of them in his coat pocket.
