    Comments about SUBWAY TOKEN CUFFLINKS:

    Purchased as a gift for my husband's father. When on a trip together he kept singing the song "the Man Who Never Returned." The song is about a man who took the subway in Boston and didn't have fare to get out of the subway.
    Seeing these made me think of that trip. He is a business man and frequently wears cufflinks so I knew it would be a perfect gift.
    The cufflinks came in a beautiful box with authentic (at least looking) subway map, etc (as described) that added nice touches to the gift.
    They are unique and stylish!

        Comments about SUBWAY TOKEN CUFFLINKS:

        I had very positive feedback from the person to whom I gave the gift. He loves NYC, but is currently living in Texas for work and appreciated the small reminder. He does not like very obvious designs and enjoys things with a bit of a story behind it and said the cufflinks were a perfect fit for him.

              The cuff links are beautiful but they arrived in a plain white box and not in the map decorated box that is shown, and described by others. Since they were a gift I was disappointed by the presentation.

                The Boston Subway tokens cufflinks are very cool. A unique gift that was well made and quirky.
                so glad that I found uncommongoods.

                  The presentation of these little cufflinks was unbeatable. They come in in a heavy white box inside UG's recycled t-shirt gift bag. Inside the box, wrapped in tissue, is a jeweler's box with New York transit map on the lid, and a card from the Transit Museum. The cufflinks themselves are sturdy, heavy, nicely detailed and beautiful. These were a wonderful gift, and my boyfriend was thrilled. They're classy enough for any occasion, and the retro style is very appealing.
