- These authentic New York City transit tokens were first implemented in 1953 when a fare rise to 15 cents, forced engineers who were not able to design a turnstile that could accept two different coins, to use tokens instead. More recently, the tokens themselves have been replaced by the Metrocard, but have endured as a symbol of old New York. Makes a great gift to all those that love this wonderful city, and comes packaged in a specially designed, map-covered cufflink box with authenticity card. Prestigiously set in sterling silver and hallmarked "NYCT".

Measures approximately 3/4" in diameter View ProductBuy Now Quick ViewNew York Quarter Cufflinks $125.00 These beautiful hand-painted coin cufflinks require the artist to carefully select each coin and, choosing from a selection of miniature curved and straight brushes, paint by hand every minute detail that already exists in the coin. In painstaking fashion, the artist applies color initially to outline the design, followed by a high tempered firing process. The firing process is repeated after each color is applied. The hand-painting process for each piece varies, some taking as long as two days to complete. In the final stage, in order to protect the delicate hand painting, the artist applies and bakes-on a covering of space age resin, which also adds depth and luster to the item while providing a lifetime of protection to the piece.
Because all of the enamels are mixed by hand at the moment of application, no two pieces are ever exactly identical, making each item truly an original. The hand-painted coin is truly a gift or keepsake to be treasured forever. View ProductBuy Now Quick ViewSterling New York Manhole Cufflinks
