    Well, many of you may want to know: what is the New York Subway Hoard?

    The NYSH was a coin hoard pieced together by the owner of a New York City subway company, consisting of rare coins of the United States. The compartments included 8 1901-S quarters, 45 complete sets of Barber dimes (minus the 1894-S), 241 1916-D dimes, 166 1942/41 dimes, 24 sets of Barber half dollars, 20 1913-S quarters, 160 1912-S nickels, 29 1918/17-D nickels, among other curios. The lot was sold to Littleton Coin Co. of Colorado in the 1990s, and is considered one of the group's highlights. new york subway hoard.png

    It had to be at least 1942, because of the presence of those '42/41 dimes.

    What about this brass-colored NYC subway token from the picture? Is there any collector's value?

    OK stupid question... you can find it on eBay for a couple of dollars so I guess that's about its value :)
