Hobo Nickel by John Demarco with Copper Inlay

“I’ve been collecting Hobo Nickels for some time now.

I decided to show my neighbour, John DeMarco, who is a retired engraver, a few of my coins. He seemed to enjoy seeing the coins so I showed him the rest of what I had accumulated.

He asked if I had a few “original” coins to spare and I gave him a bunch. A while later he arrived at my door with his version of Hobo Nickels.

There’s no need for me to describe what’s been done to the coin you are viewing, you know as well as I (if not better than I).

The coin is signed and will be shipped in an “Airtite” display container. Click for more →

“Boxcar Billy” Buffalo Hobo Nickel by Marcus Hunt, RARE!

“On offer is a rare, highly detailed, modern carved hobo nickel that has been painstakingly created by Marcus Hunt (OHNS RM-941, www.hunt-engraving.co.uk) Due to the sheer amount of engraving work I have at the moment, it is hard to say how often I will be able to carve any coins this year (it’s already been about a year since I last carved a nickel) so don’t hang around waiting for the next coin I carve; it could be next week, next month or even next year (although that’s unlikely).

This lovely little coin depicts “Boxcar Billy” AKA “The Prof”. In his beat up derby hat and wire rimmed glasses, there is nothing more The Prof likes to do than try to further his education and you’ll often see him sitting around the jungle, with book in hand, reading. Click for more →

Hobo nickel buffalo ~ by ~ Larry Foster

“This is my 298th carving, the first one that I have ever dated and numbered…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I pay close attention to detail in my carvings, and try to produce a coin that a collector would be proud to own and display in their collection. I stamp my initials “LF” in very small letters in a discreet area of the coin on the back.

Thank you!
