Token: US Newark, New Jersey Airport
Well, that's a cool token, Nancy, and collecting tokens is an enjoyable pastime for many people. However, comparing the number of coin collectors to token collectors, the are far more people who collect legal tender coins than tokens, medals, and other forms of coin-like art. This means that coins are more valuable than tokens, because there is more demand for them.
I notice your token is in the Smithsonian. Check this page.
Typical catalog values for your token run like this:
worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $5
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $35
Use our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
