||This is where I got my start in engraving. For those of you who don't know, hobo nickels began after 1913 when the Indian head, or 'buffalo' nickel replaced the V nickel. Many people of varying skills would re-carve the Indian's head or the buffalo into new designs and then sell or trade the coin. Today these originals are very collectable as a form of folk art. Mostly due to online auctions, there has been a resurgence in hobo nickel carving and some would say that many of the modern works are superior to the old originals. I'm not sure if that's true, but I have fun carving them and when I get some more done, you can find them here, or on E-bay. Although I am pretty busy and can't promise when I will be able to get to them, I also do consignment work. Below are examples of some of my nickels. If there is a price by it, it's still available.
