    Softness? The nickel was the HARDEST coin in production. Bronze, silver and gold are all softer than coppernickel.

    Overall the article wasn't bad, but of the eight coins shown at the top of the article, only one is a hobo nickel. The rest are modern carvings.

    I have this modern "Hobo Nickel" dime. It was carved in 2017 by Aaron Lujan.
