    The reverse is mushy, but that's a lion and bull at Moesia's feet.

    Oh MAN! That is a very cool hobo nickel! Do you know when it was carved? Where did you find it? Is the obverse also altered?

    Eh...it's not my nickel. I don't collect them, but I grab images whenever I see really interesting ones.

    Oh my, Steve/Jerry/Bob-- That's quite a pride.

    I got a Seljuks of Rum a week or two ago. It's slabbed (ick), just got it in the mail a couple days ago. Haven't set it free and taken pictures yet.
