1936 Hobo Nickel The Egyptian by Jay L. DeBoer OHNS

“The art of carving coins dates back to the 18th century. When the Indian Head, or Buffalo nickel, was introduced in 1913, it became popular with coin engravers.
A hobo would carve a nickel and then trade that nickel for whatever he needed at the time. Food, Lodging or a ride to his next stop.
My Great Uncle spent time on the hobo trail riding the rails. It’s an honor to keep that tradition of the hobo nickel alive.
2013 marks 100 years of the Buffalo Nickel and 100 years of carved Hobo Nickels.

Each coin carved is unique in its own way and is one of a kind.” Click for more →
