1926 Hobo Nickel “Flying Scotsman” by tmahr

“Hobo Nickel, “Flying Scotsman” Locomotive, Railway/train memorabilia Buffalo Nickel, by tmahr 2014

High relief, nice 3D, deeply carved. I feel it has very nice eye appeal with a lots of detail.

The 1926 Flying Scotsman. The Flying Scotsman is an express passenger train service that has been running between London and Edinburgh—the capitals of England and Scotland respectively—since 1862. This depicts the 1926 locomotive.

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. As a newer artist, I have tried to create unusual sculptural creations and I truly love the tie-in with the railroad and the hobo culture of its day.

Offered in the true hobo spirit.

Thank you very much for looking.

1901 Hobo Nickel “Columbia” by tmahr

“Hobo Nickel, “America’s Cup Columbia”, 1901 Liberty Nickel, by tmahr 2014

Very nice contrast, high relief, the sail is brushed and is light, lighter than the photo seems to show. I think it has nice eye appeal, very pretty.

The 1901 America’s Cup was the 11th challenge for the Cup. It took place in the New York City harbor and consisted of a best of five series of races between the defender Columbia, entered by the New York Yacht Club for the second time, and Sir Thomas Lipton’s Shamrock II, representing the Royal Ulster Yacht Club. Columbia won all three races, the last being won with handicap, defending the cup.

Columbia, a fin keel sloop, was designed and built by Nathanael Herreshoff and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company for owners J. Pierpont Morgan and Edwin Dennison Morgan of the New York Yacht Club. She was the third successful defender built by Herreshoff.

Columbia was selected in 1901 to defend the Cup, and again under the command of Charlie Barr, won all three races against Shamrock II. She was the first vessel to win the trophy twice in a row (a record not equaled until Intrepid’s back-to-back wins in 1967 and 1970.)

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.
