Places to buy, sell, or trade tokens:
- eBay Auctions has all kinds of
tokens and often token books in their huge list of items up for auction. Almost
any kind of token will show up on eBay sooner or later. If you're interested
in non-USA tokens be sure to check the eBay sites for countries you're interested
- Delcampe.net - I just found
out about this site in 2011, and it is the first auction site I've found that
looks like a reasonable alternative to eBay. Seems to be focused on Europe
(it is available in English), but well worth checking out! In Sept 2011 delcampe
had 33,000 items listed under "tokens and medals."
- WCS bulk token sales.
One of the best price I've seen on bulk arcades (as of April, 2011: mixed
$47.50/10lb or with generic removed for $59.50 including shipping, under "mixed
tokens"). I have ordered several of their bulk lots and been very pleased.
They also have bulk casino tokens, Chuck E. Cheese tokens (generic and with
cities) and several "collector lots" as well as error coins and other things.
(Nov. 2012 - WCS seems to have a much reduced selection, and I don't see bulk
arcade tokens. Not sure if it's just a lull or if they are phasing stuff out)
