Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Unusual NYC subway token

Hi; I sell NYC subway tokens on Ebay. I just sold a 1970 token that didn't have the "Y" NOT punched. I started it at $9.99 on a 7 day listing, got 4 bids, and it sold for $13.50. I would hazard to guess that your Diamond Jubilee, with the diamond unpunched would bring about the same price.

Hi Barry! If it's still actual - about the diamond not punched - I think I am interested in buying it. It's cost is up to the seller's usually. The first one of the kind I got cost me 10 dollars, the next one - 30 dollars. So the condition of course is important and the seller desides to make the price.
