Product details:

This antiqued brass chain is 20" long with a 2.5" drop, lobster claw clasp, genuine moss aquamarine briolette, and an authentic vintage subway token.

Necklace comes packaged with a printed history of the NYC tokens in a muslin drawstring bag. 

This large token with the "Y cutout" was the second token design used.  They were in use from 1970-1980. The NYC subway token was first introduced in 1953. Over the next 50 years, 6 variations were designed and minted, becoming well-known symbols of the bustling underground transit system. Just after midnight on April 13, 2003, the tokens were phased out.
