Hobo Nickel “Jackie Gleason’s Ralph Kramden” by Howard Thomas

“This coin was carved as a compliment to the Art Carney coin that is also on ebay right now, and will end in 5 days, so they will both end on the same night! And maybe, you can win them both! This is a 1936 carved hobo nickel. This one is a tribute to the famous Jackie Gleason and he calls it “Jackie Gleason’s, Ralph Kramden”! There are several pictures of this one, at different angles to show the depth of the carving. By turning the nickel, different aspects of the depth and shading are shown, and may look slightly in each photo. It is signed on the back. Take a look! Please look closely at the pictures. We try to take the best photos possible and allow big enlargements so you can see exactly what you are getting! All carvings are signed by Howard.” Click for more →

1926 Hobo Nickel Heroes Kiss 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 1936 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 →

Hobo Nickel, 1927 Harley Davidson by tmahr

“Hobo Nickel, love token , 1927 Harley Davidson Motorcycle by tom mahr

This is a ‘board track” pacing motorcycle with the very low slung, almost vertical drop, handlebars typical of the track bikes of the day. Created from a 1927 Buffalo Nickel, the year of this wonderful machine.

The HOBO nickel tradition takes small denomination coinage, typically nickels and turns then into something “different”, a miniature canvas. Often, they were created by the then out of work, Hobos during the Great Depression. In turn the name “Hobo Nickel”. Offered with all due respect, in the true Hobo sense.

Hand carved and engraved by tmahr in 2013. I feel it has nice eye appeal with a textured background/field.” Click for more →
