    Kind of looks like the orb headed monster they would show each week during the credits at the end of Star Trek episodes. startTREK.jpg

    Here is the most detailed hobo nickel in my collection:

    And yes this is real! It almost looks like a drawing, hard to believe this was hand carved on a nickel! – This is the expert craftsmanship of Robert Morris, titled “Lost In The Blades”. :devil:

    In 1947 a strange craft crash landed near Roswell New Mexico. Some say alien bodies were recovered... :eek:

    I almost bought one of these a couple of weeks ago. Ever since I saw yours months back I've wanted one. But alas, it wasn't in the best of conditions (couldn't see the disembodied head) so I didn't buy.

    I wouldn't call this creepy, but I would certainly consider it strange for a medal.....

    Belgian medalist, Jacques Wiener, 1815-1899, was probably best known for his (almost) 3-D depictions of many of the great European cathedrals, but he also executed several medals for various prisons. This medal was produced in 1873 and shows the layout of the Belgian prison at Arlon.

    I think we could all benefit by having the Reverend Pat Robertson explain to us what he sees in the coin! Bet he claims it's a commemorative recognizing Canada as the birthplace of pedophilia or some other highly enlightened explanation.
