Hobo Nickel Lucille Ball 1937 Hand Engraved By Ronald Proulx

“The hobo nickel is a sculptural art form involving the creative modification of small-denomination coins, essentially resulting in miniature bas reliefs. The nickel, because of its size, thickness, and relative softness, was a favored coin for this purpose. However, the term hobo nickel is generic, as carvings have been made from many different denominations.

This 1937 nickel has been hand engraved in the similar fashion used by those for centuries.

The art of hand engraving is becoming a lost art, it take great dedication and time learning this fine skill. ” Click for more →
