I have three in similar style with color added.
Maybe the color is nail polish?
Are you sure Tommy? I was thinking it was the 1916 DDO. LOL
I thought of that but dismissed it.
Thanks, I would appreciate knowing.
People use a lot.of things to darken coins. One carver uses nic-a-date to prep the surface. A sulfer solution is also used. I used to use a sharpie. I was never really happy with the results.
Isn't Sulphur a component of Nic-A-Date?
My bottle says Ferric-Chloride. No other ingredients listed but it does have warnings.
Thanks for that. I cannot currently locate my old bottle. Seems I've squirreled it away somewhere. But Ferric-Chloride does ring a bell now that you mention it.
No problem and Happy Easter my friend.
And a Happy Easter to you also.
. I won the coin pictured below for $67.00, including the buyers premium .
Modern Hobo Nickel, Carving by Shane Jameson (son of expert carver Bill Jameson). 1937 host coin. Signed on edge "SJ 30".
I don't collect Hobo Nickels but always wanted a modern one to go with an "old classic" one that I bought many years ago pictured below .
I did a featured article for Coin Talk on Hobo Nickels on Sept. 2, 2019, & if anyone is interested it can be found on the Coin Talk Archives .
You bought an amazing coin! I have seen your vintage coin somewhere- I have a photo of it saved. For Modern hobo nickels David He does really excellent work. I bought one of his recently.
