    I have one of these P E Fare Tokens. Are they rare or are there still many of them still around? Just trying to learn a bit more about them. Are you still interested in acquiring more of these through donations?

    thanks, Ron

    Hi Ron – don’t know if anyone responded, but I also have a number of these tokens. They seem to fairly common. I’m curious as to what years the above version was in use.. I also have another version where the PE is side to side vs up and down.
    Do you, or anyone else know which versions were used when?
    Thanks,
    Les

    I also have one of these tokens. I found the token in Westin Mo. I feel the token was from a WWII Veteran or a person who may have been stationed, or worked in the Los Angeles area. Finding the token was a very nice find.
