You're not alone! I've also got one of the much older, 10 (or maybe it was 15) cent tokens--thin as a dime. Tokens were fun to collect. Three cheers to any city that still uses them.

way cool, I started with my first token for my first full time job back in the stone age, circa 1979. Yes, I admit it, I played with Dinasours.

I'd have to agree that tokens were much easier to use. I miss them. The only good thing about the metrocard is the bus-to-train transfer capability... can't get on the train with those old-school 10" long slips of paper they used to call bus transfers lol. Can't get on the train with the bus transfers they have now either... =/
