FEATURED WEB SITE: THE TOKEN CATALOG

This week's Featured Web Site is Richard Greever's Token catalog.

This website project was begun in the Summer of 2006 by Richard Greever. The initial version was released in February of 2007. This website is used for many purposes:

  • Search for a token to find out where it is from
  • Cataloging by State, County, City or anything else
  • Track prices
  • Track an individual collection
  • Research

When I first started collecting tokens, I searched the internet for information and was sadly disappointed. As my collection and interest grew, I wanted a way to keep track of my collection, but also a way to share the information I had with others. The idea of this website seemed like the ideal solution.

The website is a user contribution site. It grows as our contributors add information. It grows based on the interests of the contributors. When the website was first released, it contained only tokens from the state of Oregon and there was a single contributor. As we now close on 2008, there are over 200 registered users and more than 80,000 tokens have been listed from all 50 states (and some foreign countries).
