1946 Hobo Nickel “Thomas the Tank Engine ” by tmahr

“Hobo Nickel, 1946 S “Thomas the tank Engine” Locomotive Railway/train memorabilia Nickel, by tmahr 2013

Possibly the most recognized train engine in the world !

Created from a 1946 S, very nice uncirculated BU Jefferson nickel, the year the Thomas the Tank Engine book was first published (1946).

Hand carved and engraved, nice contrast with fine line detail. I think this has very nice eye appeal. The locomotive is raised above the background with Thomas’s face being the highest point, nice 3D effect.

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.

Due to its low cost and portability, this medium was particularly popular among hobos, hence the name.
