    I have two old tokens. One is a Pacific Railway Co. token with the name PACIFIC RAILWAY CO. on one side, ONE TOKEN FARE on the other side. Cut out capital letters PE. The P is larger than the E which sets snuggly underneath. The other token has LOS ANGELES RAILWAY on one side and GOOD FOR ONE FARE ont the other side with a cut out bell in the center.

    We have two tokens, one like pictured above, and another for Pacific Electric Railway Co. with the PE cutout in the middle. Used c. 1940s? My great aunt was there during WWII and may have gotten them then.
