Denton Transit Tokens
I recently found a set of 5 Denton (Texas) bus line tokens. They were marked 275a-275e, and the tokens are dated 1937, 1940, 1944, 1945, & 1947.
So, I'm trying to find out which of these is 275a, which is 275b, etc. Is anyone familiar with transit tokens? Which numbering system is being used?
Also, why don't we have a forum for tokens or exonumia?
Still looking for a transit token guru...
Not a transit token guru, but bump for others.

Here is one data source (I don't own it) --
"6th Edition of the Atwood-Coffee Catalogue of United States and Canadian Transportation Tokens"
Available at www.vecturist.com -- this is all I know.

I saw this yesterday but couldn't access my book
Here is the info
These are the Atwood Catalog code numbers
The old catalog lists these at 50c except the last one is 35c and the first is $2.
Usually 50c tokens are fairly scarce and can bring anywhere from 50c to $3 at auction but I doubt this applies to these. A $2 token can bring 2 to $8 at auction.
I was just in Denton Texas today!
Did you ride the bus?
