Brass MetroCard Token Necklace
This necklace is an authentic 50’s era NY transit token paired with a charm crafted from a miniature New York MetroCard. Like transit tokens, the iconic Metrocard is scheduled to begin phase out in May of 2019. • Each miniature replica Metrocard has been printed on the same stock and by the same press as the actual MetroCards. Measures approximately 7/8" x 5/8” and set in brass.
|What's the Story||Introduced in 1994, the MetroCard revolutionized transit in the city, boosting ridership, making bus-to-subway transfers possible in 1997 and introducing bonus value and unlimited ride cards the following year.|
