NY Token Wallet

$65.00

Grained black leather wallet/money clip combination inlaid with either an out-of-circulation vintage NYC subway token. Large enough for a substantial stack of cards, but slim enough not to cause an unsightly back pocket bulge.

The subway fare was a nickel for the first 44 years, and a dime for the next 5 years. In 1953, the fare was set to rise to 15c, but engineers could not design a turnstile that would accept 2 different coins. Thus, the token was born. During the token's 50th Anniversary year, the MTA announced that tokens were being retired in favor of the versatile MetroCard.

All money clip style wallets feature sewn in magnetic shield, protecting debit and credit cards from erasure
