eBay Category of the Week: Tokens: Transit

I just found out we have a category called “Exonumia.” That was news to me, as I didn’t even know there was a word called exonumia.

You probably use exonumia on a regular basis, without even knowing. What is it? To quote Wikipedia:

Items such as bus tokens (transportation tokens), bar or pub tokens, and casino tokens or chips are some of the more common forms of exonumia.

We have a number of Exonumia subcategories. I think my favorite is “Transit Tokens”.

But “So-Called Dollars” is not a bad one, either.

I love eBay.

  1. Hi Adam,

    That’s a fun one, yeah. I came across it while researching all the eBay categories for my book, the eBay Price Guide. Y’know what else is fun..the elongated coins..like the ones trains have run over.

    Also, scripopholy, like old stock certs,are cool..anyone for an AOL IPO report? :-)
