gift description:

Metro cards have rendered these currencies obsolete, but the coins have more than token sentimental value and they exude plenty of retro style. Rescued from subway systems nationwide, the tokens are set in sterling silver to commemorate iconic cities, times gone by, and the coins' nostalgic charm. The New York and Boston cuff links show both the front and back of the token; Chicago and San Francisco are identical on both sides.
  • made by Tokens & Icons, an original licensee of New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority. 100% guaranteed authentic
  • choose New York City, Boston, Chicago or San Francisco; see above for available styles
  • each pair includes a certificate of authenticity and arrives in a transit-map printed gift box
  • due to the recovered nature of the tokens, each piece is unique
  • elegant sterling-silver base with swivel backing
  • measures approximately 3/4" diam.

Sentimental Purchase December 13, 2012
"I bought these for my father in law as a Christmas gift. My husband, who also grew up riding the "T", saw them and was immediately jealous. I may end up getting him a pair as well."

Awesome Gift!! November 27, 2012
"Gave these cufflinks to my brother-in-law for his 45th birthday. He used to use these muni tokens in San Francisco when he was a small boy. My husband liked them so much that I have now ordered a second pair for him! I plan to buy a french cuff shirt and present them together for Christmas. By the way, these cufflinks look MUCH better in person!!"

Finishing touch November 01, 2012
"I have had my eye on these for awhile now. I have sons and sons-in-law in each of these cities and they all use public transportation. I bought the cuff links and then dress shirts with french cuffs, attached the cuff links and wrapped them up. A great gift with a finishing touch."

Practical & Sentimental February 15, 2012
"I gave these to my husband as a gift for our first Valentine's Day as a married couple. He's originally from New England, and is familiar with the "T" and the old tokens he used when he lived up there. So I thought these would be a great reminder of happy memories of home. He really loves them & even the box they came in, which has a small map of Boston on the lid. Very clever gift. I'm usually forced to think outside the box with his gift-giving- he isn't easily impressed, preferring practical over sentimental. These cufflinks are both, AND he's impressed- wife scores.. I'm glad I came across them!"

great looking This is a Christmas gift for a guy who is hard to buy for--he has great taste and always dresses well and lives in downtown Chicago (can you guess which city I bought??) so I thought I'd try these and see if they looked decent. I'm very happy with them and I think he will be too. The accompanying certificate of authenticy helps with the explanation and makes it more special. Highly recommend.
