A 165,000 pound "Elephant" in New Hampshire

New Hampshire has 15 million of them.

It is estimated that they weigh 165,000 pounds.

What are they? Highway Tokens.

The state decided, with the advent of the EZ-Pass System, they would do away with the use of these "discount" tokens, which of course happened.

These coins are becoming collectors items, and several museums are keeping a few on hand for
historical purposes...

Greg Leedberg states his case AGAINST the New Hampshire EZ-Pass System.
