Video Arcade Token Hoard of
I recently got ANOTHER 1200 pounds of tokens and coins, and I thought you might be interested in one of these amazing unsorted lots. (And WHY!)
I also now have SORTED lots of tokens:
STOP! Do you have KIDS? Do your friends or neighbors have KIDS? Consider TOKENS as a great gift to use in your local video arcades. If you don't like paying 25 cents for each token at the arcade, read on for the best deal possible.
It started several years ago with a call from a Chicago-area vending machine operator. They had accumulated THREE THOUSAND POUNDS of tokens mainly used as quarters in their customer's machines, in parking meters and other sources, and was I interested? Naturally! After a lot of samples and correspondence back and forth, we finally agreed on a price. The initial 3000 pounds (over A QUARTER MILLION TOKENS) arrived on a 40-foot semi-trailer. The neighbors were wondering what could possibly be arriving. Too much weight to carry to my basement office, and too many to sort! Try moving 8 tons sometime! (SPECIAL NOTE to Investigative Reporters: All material is legally held, paid for by check to authorized sellers. Call me with further questions).
My ex-wife wasn't too enthusiastic about the huge quantities involved and all the overflowing barrels in the garage, but the price was (and is) right. When you see the price, you'll agree this is a bargain for you. The response to the announcements in the numismatic press and my ads has been enthusiastic, with many orders and reorders. I soon sold over 2000 pounds, and was becoming concerned with selling out. Then my supplier called with another TWO THOUSAND POUNDS, delivering them in the back of his groaning van. That followed with ANOTHER 2500 pounds of tokens AND foreign coins. Then another ton and another ton! I've now purchased over 18,000 POUNDS of tokens and world coins!
ALMOST SOLD OUT! Please note that I can no longer get tokens or coins from my original
source, and I'm almost sold out, with under 500 pounds available.
Of the 760 video arcade tokens, there was an excellent variety in types and sizes. You should
realize that many minor varieties exist, but I counted only the major types. There were 57 different major types,
the largest group being Show Biz Pizza varieties. There were 86 from Chuck E. Cheese with various types and dates.
Also 15 major types with over 10 each, with some varieties. There were 4 each of 3 pieces, 3 each of 9, 2 each
of 24 and 65 singles. In addition there were 83 pieces with 5 to 9 each, with the balance Show Biz. Also included
were two tanning bed tokens, one Las Vegas Dollar token, one peep show, and two plastic tokens. Please note this
is somewhat different from my previous surveys, which had higher concentrations of Parking, Transit and foreign
coins. These do vary from shipment to shipment, and from bag to bag.
