The Chicago CTA tokens were most likely used for their elevated subway system in the early 1900’s. While no longer in use, around the mid-2000’s, the city of Chicago had all their remaining stock of tokens sold and melted down for scrap. Chicago tokens are less common to find in bulk. The tokens are roughly the size of a dime.
Other than the token, each necklace is made with new materials. The size of a Ball Chain necklace is 20 inches. The size of a Leather Necklace can be adjusted to as large as roughly 25 inches and down to 12 inches using the two-knot system.
