Chicago Transit Authority Tokens found
I recently stumbled upon a group of 20 CTA tokens in my house. The original package is also still there. What are they worth?
Here are some pictures

Tokens, unlike collector coins, have no set market value. The values shown in catalogs are only a guideline or starting place. The only real way to tell what these are worth is to sell them at auction where multiple (hopefully) people will be interested and will bid. Atwoods catalog of Transportation tokens (my copy is rather dated) says 20¢ each as near as I can tell from your pics. The fact that you have the original package may add value if you find the right collector.
