Oakland, California J. C0FFEK, i. This is the last issue you i;ill receive unless your A. More nev; issues are cosiing out than for :aany years in the past and promises to be exciting for us. Together with this issue v,'e are sending you the Index to Volume 33 of The Fare dox. This is not part of tliis issue; it should be put at the end of your DecemJjer, , issue. I must confess that this was a slender month for good articles in The Fare Box.
I had almost notliing to publish but lists, as you will see when you proceed into this issue. I am confident, however, that irtany of you ijill be sending me good publishable articles about tokens soon. A while back I offered three tokens Cal.
I vras swamped, and these tokens are gone, I receive from time to time inquiries about the duplicates in Ralph Freiberg's collection, which is in my possession. There are fascinating things in these old issues, and when one has nothing else to do he can enjoy hours of good reading by going bac3; over old issues. So for the first time in manv a year, an issue of The Pare Box goes out v;ithout Pvalph's name up tliere.
Remember to send reports of unlisted tokens to Harold. Residents call Please ask for joel Reznick. Over the last few months, I have managed to go through most of the backlog and am putting in into order for publication on a regular basis. There is a large backlog of unlisted tokens and an even larger backlog of new varieties. Currently, my main interest will be to publish as many new listings as possoble i and then begin to dig into the new varieties backlog.
I do not mean to say that I consider new varieties are to taka a back seat to new issues. Currently, I have in the area of fifty pieces, in addition to what appears in the current column. Very few questions have arisen as to how many new varieties are yet to be listed. I intend to concentrate on new issues until they are few and far between. Once I get the majority of new issues out of the way, I intend to catch up on new variety listings. There are close to two hundred of these to be sorted out and listed.
My first supplement covers the new issues from California into Ohio. I am going to attempt something a little different in the field of new listings. Whenever possible, send the token to me. This makes my job simpler in determining size, unusual design, metal and numerous other problems in determining whether the token can be listed. There are quite a number of tokens that I cannot list because of improper descriptions and lack of pertinent data, I intend to send out letters on many of the token rubbings that I am currently holding because of incomplete descriptions.
Currently, I am considering answering letters of request for information only if they are accompanied by an 3A3S, With the large volume of mail coming in I consider this to be a valid request. An enclosed telephone number may speed up the process of getting information to an individual.
The forthcoming year promises to be an interesting one for vecturists. I hope to be able to contribute my share to the hobby and am looking forward to cooperation from my fellow associates. Peel free to contribute your comments and suggestions in order to make this a good year for all of us. I should have information on this area within the next couple of months and will be passing the information on in a future issue of The Fare Box.

Maorstrand There also exists a few B,C,D, and J tokens with a triangle cut out of the center to remove the value. These may or may not have been done by the company to raise the value of these tokens when fares were Inoreased. Remember when you report new discoveries, in addition to giving the exact wording spelling, and punctuation, to send rubbings or photographs. This is essential to insure accurate listings.

AVA Annual Convention next August, Many of us had been looking forward to meeting him for the first time on that occasion. March 3. The AVA mimeograph machine collapsed on me last month in the middle of the January issue. Witii the assistance of prayer and a long-handled screwdriver I was able to keep it going to ccsnplete that issue.
The A. Dick repair man arrived the following week and informed me that three "bushings" are excessively worn, and replacements must be ordered from Chicago. They have not arrived. So this issue, I hope, will also be produced as was the last one. But it's tricky. If I can't get the thing to work, I'll have to farm out the pages to an offset house.
Hence I kept the issue down to 12 pages to save on 1 my nerves, or 2 the offset expense. With luck the machine will be running in time for the March issue next month. This one is like OH A but, he says, the new one is bronze instead of brass. Otherwise the same die work as the one already listed, which John also owns.
He found this one in Columbus, whereas he had found the other one in "the eastern part of the state in one of the river towns. On the same trip last November Steve also visited Damascus, Syria, "but did not see a single token there, only lots and lots of coins. Upon comparing the two tok- ens, however, I noticed that the die work is distinctly differentl I have affixed photos enlarged 2x of the obverses of the two tokens to the left.
There are sev- eral differences, but the most obvious is the placing of the top star. The star is closer to "toll" on the left token than on the right. The most interes- ting patterns are those which aure of an entirely dif- ferent design from anything that was adopted for use, and such is the case here. The central triangle de- sign of the token is actual- ly the logo of the Denver Tramway which, of course, is now defunct. Although the patterns were never used, it is interesting that the token in Ralph's collection is quite worn.
Someone must have carried it around in his pocket. I 2 un certain that many of them will, especially overseas members who didn't get their dues notices until six weeks after they were sent out. Johnson Page. However, at the turn of the century, Wisconsin was the setting for just such a farce.
Late industrial development and tlie water barrier posed by Lake Michigan made the small and scattered towns of Wisconsin a prime selling area for the varied small businesses of the Chicago area. So when the railroads pushed north in the 's this vast new market was opened to the traveling salesman. The salesman of those days would generally arrive in town burdened with suit- cases filled with samples, spend the night at the hotel, and leave the following day.
These "drummers," as they were called, naturally took a dim view of trudging the half mile or more from the depot to the hotel. It didn't take these midwesterners long to knock to- gether a makeshift "bus" or to find a battered secondhand stage coach and lie in wait at the depots when their city cousins arrived. The delighted drummers found that the price of this luxury never varied — two bits a staggering price in those days --but what choice did he have?
As competition developed between liverymen for this lucrative business, it became necessary to "assure" the salesman that he would not be charged for the re- turn trip, and metal tokens were procured for this purpose. The tokens were gener- ally quite large, ranging from the size of a cjuarter to some as large as a silver dollar.
The metal was brass or aluminum, although a few reusable ceirdboard pieces exist also. Depot hotels are the rarest tokens in numismatics. They were struck in small batches, perhaps only at a time, and were used for only a few short years due to the evolution of the automobile.
Within the grouping called "depot hotels," or "depotels," the following types exist: 1, Transfer tokens. Good between depots of different railroads. Hotel bus tokens. Business-stimulating tokens the drummer paid for along with his room rate painless extraction of the fare. Auto bus tokens. The latest type depot tokens used, possibly as late as Used within the city like our present taxis, as well as between the hotels and depots.
The individuality of the liverymen is evident in the obverses and reverses of these metal milestones. The term "bus" is often spelled "buss," and the use of per- iods, stars, diamonds, aixi other decorative trivia added the homey midwestern touch. World War I finished tliese hack lines. A few of them motorized, but evidence is that they were never particularly successful. The beleaguered drummer was one of the first to resort to his own automobile perhaps in a spirit of revenge?
Generally these were electric powered streetcars. So passed another nostalgic phase in Wisconsin and Midwest history. This was listed last month, I regret tMt only ny reyuiar members will receive this token, as I have only enough of them for members. Here is a case where it 0 tys to be a regular in the N. This is important. So please keep inside those limits. And make the check out to me personally and not to "New Issues Service" as 1 have no account under the N.
If I get all caught up, there is a chance of two more tokens going your way, and these will go to both Regular and dissociate members of N. These will be the Minneapolis Zoo tokens, listed this month. These are fine looking tokens. Some of you were kind of uptight about this, but I really am sorry. President Uuane Feisel led the group to the following decisions: 1. Meetings will be held monthly except In August and December. This will eliminate the necessity of dues.
Weather was beautiful for a winter's drive and fifteen mem- bers, plus wives, made an appearance. As you would expect, the noma! There was a short break for an informal meeting to discuss some important business. Location, timing and cost, are the major factors involved.
More on tfsis later. Also discussed was a meeting to be held June 29, , at Rockhill Furnace, Pa. Next meeting will be March 9, same place and tine. It seems even more fitting — although our plans were formulated long ago--that we should visit our Canadian neighbors now, after their magnificent gesture on our behalf.
It should be a most enjoyable outing. Winnipeg is a beautiful city, and whether or not you have been there, this is an ideal time to visit this attractive area. I have been asBured by both U. What we collect are hobby items, not coin of the realm. So please put any such worries out of your mind. Annual Convention will be held at Winnipeg, Manitoba, on August 8,9, As in the past there will be a combination f loor-and-ma 1 1 auction held In connection with the Convention.

Essentially they are supposed to be giveaways, like calling cards. Anyway, several errors manage bo creep into my listings from time to time. Some- times members instruct me what letters to assign their tokens.
I try to accommodate these requests, although it is strange for an issuer to tell a cataloguer how to list his tokens. Can you imagine a bus company telling us how to list his new tokens? To insure that your tokens get the correct nvunbers hereafter, will you please insert each personal token you send me in a 2x2 env elop e with the correct number it should have? This will help me avoid errors, and it will help you get your tokens listed in the order you wish.
I assume members are more aware than anybody what numbers their tokens have. X free download from: www. The monorail is over a mile long, and carries about 40 riders in five cars. The operator, or conductor, of the monorail train narrates the terrain and different animals as the train trav- els through the zoo. The Zoo ordered its tok- ens through Perey Turnstiles.
This tells us how the tokens are collected, but not who struck them. The New Issues Service will handle these issues. Kelley reports that Port George Wright has been deactivated as an army base for many years, and part of its facilities were then used for an Indian school. The date of issue of this token, or where the bus line operated, is not knoivji. The die work indicates a token probably struck prior to World War II.
This token needs more research and that is why we have given it a conservative value. Since we believe that the tokens now listed from Red Deer are really from Binghamton, NY die work being identical to that of NY 80 M , this new token just might be really from Red Deer.
Before listing tokens we like to have some proof that they are in use, or have been used. Since receiving Gene's letter we received a letter from J. Douglas Ferguson confirming that they are in use, and we are hopeful of obtaining a supply for the New Issues Service.
We are already working on some more new issues for next month.

Bill Carr held AVA , having foined us way book in , He was a regular at our early oonventions, and was one of those who helped write our present consti- tution, Toxxtrd the end he slowed down, but not so much that he didn't maintain our venerable correspondence. The A,V,A, has changed a lot from those good early years, but a lot of things about the A,V,A, haven't changed, and one of these is the affection we all have for each other in our common hobby and interest, Len and Bill were part of what makes our Association something special, A last fare- well to them both, with our thanks for a hundred happy meetings and memories.

But do be sure to send in your registration if you plan to attend. It is enormously easier on all of us to have early registrations. The Convention, ovsr first held outside the U. Also last month on page 16 we ran a list of members who were late in sending in their dues.
As I suspected, nany of those on the list did send in their dues before the deadline, and many more have done so since then. Every year we worry that a large number of members will drop out, but then there's nearly always a flood right at the end. Seems some of our most venerable members are congenital procrast- inators, but we love them just the same. Those on the list on Page 16 who are not on the list below may be presumed to have stayed with us. G, Smith,' R. Included in the auction were a few rare transportation tokens.
I do not have the full list of prices rea- lized yet, but I do know what two of the tokens brought. What it does mean is that certain collectors who specialize in one state are willing to pay very generous prices for the few rare tokens they still need in the state of their specialty. Nevertheless we have to face the facts of life, that rare transportation tokens are getting up there in value.
This may make some of us unhappy. The price of oil also makes some of us unhappy. There isn't rmich we can do about either situation. The silver lining on the vecturist cloud, however, is that thousands of transportation tokens are still available for a very modest price and that a large and representative collection is still quite inexpensive. I usually mention about ads at the bottom of the last page, but ran out of space this month. The ad also should be on a separate sheet 'all by itself.
Don't put it in as part of a letter, as it is just liable to be put in the wrong tray and never get printed. About the best way to submit an ad is via a postcard. That also saves you a nickel. If your ad includes an auction, it must not auction tokens listed at under in any catalogue. Tokens now in use, regardless of value, also should not be auctioned, and personal tokens, ex- cept those of deceased members, should not be auctioned.
Finally, there is no dead- line. Send in your ad and I'll run it in the next issue. But remember the mails are slow, and sometimes your ad gets here just one day late, which means it won't free download from: www. The ad must be different each time don't ask us to run the same ad more than once , and has to be sent in each month. Don't send more than one at a time as we have no way of keeping holdovers. All of this may seem complicated, but the purpose is to make it easy and sensible for all of us.
The ads are the most popular part of The Fare Box. So please send them in. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which operates all public transportation in the Greater Boston area, has just completed extension of a rapid transit line to Braintree. When AVA mem- ber Foster Palmer rode the new Braintree line on opening day, he was excited when he saw a sign about tokens.
But it's only used in Braintree. Gary Patterson sends a rubbing of a token about which we know nothing. But it could also be for admission to something that has nothing to do with transportation. But first of all, where is Valley Park? Petersburg, Florida, from to , I suppose the first question is. Should we really be listing as transportation tokens, tokens vhich permit you to slide down something?
For instance on page 65 of their February issue which contains fifty legal-sire pages! Cunningham, O. These tokens were available from machines, and were valid for 3 shillings 6 pence child fare, or 7 shillings adult fare. On the reverse they "had the standard short conditions. I had never heard of these items before.
We of the DWA who knew him through so many meetings, shows, and conventions and who lived with his sincere and jovial manner will truly miss his presence. Some of us knew Len better and longer than others did, but he never showed a preference of friendship for anyone in our group.
He wrote and learned that the Lodge no longer sponsors the tour, but that the City of Bisbee now operates the tours. The Editor has just received a letter from Jeffrey L. Coffee: Enclosed please find the two tokens that you requested. These tokens were originally used by the Traildust Town Zoo. It was a privately owned Zoo in the general locale of Bisbee. The Zoo closed ahout the time the Mine Tour was to open so the City purchased them and had them counter steimped.
The tokens are used to pay for the Mine Tour. The large one is used for the under- ground tour while the smaller one is used for the bus tour of the Phelps Dodge Mining site. The tokens are still in use and they initially were placed in use February 1, The larger one may be for a walking tour, and not to ride on anything, so whether or not it would be a listable transportation token is uncertain.
They may be ordered from Mr. Miller was one of the earliest bus operators in Canton, Ohio. In S to. Miller started a jitn ey bus line. His route was from the square of Canton North on Market Avenue to 12th Street north; east on 12th to Maple Avenue; north on Maple to the end of the street, somewhere near the present 24th or 25th streets; then a return trip to the square after a turn around.
This particular area of Can- ton had no streetcar service, to. Miller's operation proved successful because shortly to. Miller purchased a Studebaker truck chassis with a streetcar style body to run his route. City directories show to. Miller as a jitney driver, chauffeur, taxi driver, from to , After Mr, Miller is listed as the proprietor of Miller's Garage, In to the directories indicate Miller as proprietor of Miller's Garage and A.
Both businesses are at the same address, which would be about two-thirds along the route distance, about a block west of actual operation. He is listed as president and general manager. Between and Miller apparently operated some lines under Buckeye Coach Company, which was an intercity line from Canton to Ravenna, Ohio.
In Mr. Return was north on pueber Avenue to 9th Street, S. W,, east to Market Avenue, north to the square. These would have been the largest industries in town. T, 9 L, or other bus lines. The 15th Street and Harrison Avenue line operated: south on Market to 15th, west to Harrison Avenue, south to the end of the street. This would have served the steel mill of Timken Roller Bearing; U. Miller's garage operation was not unusual to early bus operation. Many early operators ran garages, auto liveries, and were car or truck dealers.
These lines of work would be natural combinations. A truck sales operation had free advertising for the truck chassis. My feeling is that the garage was a fill-in for operating buses only when service was needed — starting time at the offices, shift changes, office closing time and early shoppers.
It is interesting that Miller's Buckeye Coach Company was right across the street frcmn my house at 10th Street, N. The building is two storeys high on my side — 11th Street, N. On the 11th Street side to. Miller and to. Several other local bus operations were liveried here also. In to. Miller and all other independent operators formed Canton Motor Coach Company.
Prior to that date all bus operations required only a license from the City. Many say 74 cash or 4 tokens for Others say 6 tokens for or 64 cash. The fare would be most likely correct as the valye of A was at this level. Some say token use only, but this is doubtful. Ill, by H. Blue; Steak County Story, Vol. Heald, free download from: www.

The token is somewhat corroded, apparently having been buried in the ground and then disinterred. Back came good results. Bob's letter follows, "Bill Tott called me last night and gave me some very Interesting data. He talked to his father who is 90 years old and was very excited about the token.
Hubert, father of Bill and son of Herman, remembers very well the tokens and use. They were used from the depot to the postoffice from about to around It was a horse-drawn hack, and ex- tra horses had to be used during bad and muddy weather.
It carried mail and passengers and also at times went to Alton, Iowa, about 4 miles. After about Herman's son George took over the line. Some Totts still live in Orange City. Herman moved to Sioux City around The K is a black token with yellow lettering. The new token, which will be listed as N, is a yellow token with black lettering.
This new token, like K and M, will not be available from the New Issues Service, and neither bus bus company nor the welfare department in Rochester will even answer re- quests for them. These tokens are very difficult to come by. Incidentally, Mr. Borden added that the school token, L, is used by high school students until 4 pm for a fare; J is used after 4 pm as a fare "It doesn't make much sense to me," he adds, "But most fares don't.

Box - Atlanta, GA , 1 would assume that Volume I Is still also available at the same pripe, but cannot be certain, A third volume, to complete the work, will be ready by the end of the year.
This was because quite a few of our members paid their dues close to the deadline, with the result that I pulled their address plates, and they did not receive their copies of the February Fare Box. I also cut the press run for the February issue by copies, thinking we had lost that many members. I,t now turns out that about SO members who did pay their dues have not yet received their February issues. I only have about 20 copies left, and this poses a problem. Fortunately, AVA President Joel Reznick has access to a plain paper copier, so after my 20 extra copies are exhausted, Joel will run off copies on both sides of the page Just like The Fare Box, and send these to you.
Now, if you did not receive the February issue, please drop me a note and let me know. Our records are, for the moment, in such a state that I don't know for sure who got that issue and who didn't. First 20 requests will get the originals; the rest will get copies from Joel. But everybody will get the issue who wants it. Add varieties to the following; CA A Obv. English listings will be published later this year.

The passes were distributed to all who regis- tered for the closing night banquet. The headquarters hotel for the convention was the Albuquerque Convention Center, However, since that place did not have adequate banquet facilities the Albuquerque Hilton hosted the banquet, euid this was about five miles from the Convention Center. Thus only those who signed up for the ban- quet were eligible to receive one of these passes.
Anyone who is a mentoer of the A. It isn't. So delete incused for MO A reverse. Bob Kelley sent me the PA listing for verification. Copper it isi This is indeed an unusual issue as the listed regular issue, PA C, was placed into cir- culation in Which reminds me: If you believe you have a new listing that is the same as an existing listing but of a different metal, you must submit the actual token for ver- ification.
I've received ten specimens for verification during the past year and nine turned out to be plated including the PI D in zinc tdiich Mr. Coffee mentioned in The Fare Box several months back. I am interested in knowing who owns Alberta A,B,C, and the source of the specimens if not via a trade with another collector, before we relist them from Bing- hamton, NY.
I own all three specimens but they were obtained by purchase of collec- tions so I cannot ascertain their original source. Alberta A is possible under- lined census as I only know of two of them, according to Freiberg's and ny files. Would the owner of Unidentified please send me a rubbing, since the Frei- berg files lack verification.
I question this -listing since it is similar to Unid. R, CO. Size of issue is also questioned. Another listing is questionable. The person we thought owned NY AB does not own it. If scsneone does own this token would he please send the token to me for ver- ification.
