US toll tokens

Do you have any U.S. bridge tokens, Peter? These days, we just use change (or bills), or EZ-Pass to pay for tolls, but you used to be able to buy tokens for a small discount over the price of paying with cash.

That was quite an interruption. I was all set to show the tokens when one thing led to another. Anyway, I have very few US transportation tokens other than underground tokens. Here's an example.

I'm surprised that you have the Delaware River PA/NJ token! I used to use a bridge that took those exact tokens weekly. I still have a few of them.

I don't remember how or when I got it. Maybe one thing to learn is that tokens, like coins, get around. I hope you'll also agree with me that tokens are a lively alternative, when coins get boring.

Quite! I have quite a 'tin' full of tokens that I've saved!
