Boston Elevator Company/Metro Tokens

2 posts in this topic


I have a couple of tokens that would have been used as fare for the Boston Elevator Company which later became the Metropolitan Transit Authority that ran the Boston Metro.  Just wondering if there is even a market for these types of coins.  Any additional info on these items would be great!  Obverse and Reverse of the Boston Elevator Company coin shown - only one side of the Metro Transit Authority coin shown because it is exactly the same on the other side.

Thank you!

That is actually the Boston Elevated Railway Company.

Both tokens were manufactured by the Scovill Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Connecticut. There is certainly a market for them, but they appear to be common. There is an auction on Ebay now with examples of these two tokens and ten others:
