    You have heard of Hobo Nickels. I guess this could be considered a Hobo Fin.

    The long hair looks good...covers up his big ears...and the eye patch is pretty cool too. A better look than the original Hobo.

    Nice find Hobo. Hang onto it or try to keep it amongst collectors if you can.

    What does "Fin" mean? Was that supposed to be "Hobo FRN"? (Federal Reserve Note)

    "Fin" is a slang term for a $5 note. I don't know where it came from, though.

    I found this on Wikipedia.
    The $5 bill is sometimes nicknamed a "fin". The term has German/Yiddish roots and is remotely related to the English "five", but it is far less common today than it was in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
