1936 “Auto Union Silver Arrow” by tmahr

“Hobo Nickel, “Auto Union” Silver Arrow, type D Automotive memorabilia Buffalo Nickel, by tmahr 2014

The legendary Auto Únion Silver Arrows dominated the major races of the 1930s, winning 32 of 54 races up to the end of 1937. The battles fought out between the Auto Únion race cars and the Mercedes single-seaters are unforgotten. Most of the Auto Únion Grand Prix race cars built in the German town of Zwickau in Saxony went missing after the Second World War. All that remained were photos, documents and only five originals worldwide, a 16-cylinder Type C and a single 16-cylinder Type C and 3 type Ds.

I think it has very nice eye appeal with the high relief race car with textured sky in the back ground. When this nickel was minted in 1936, these were pretty amazing, cutting edge automobiles. This is my miniature rendition to a beautiful vehicle.

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.” Click for more →
