You're welcome. I always enjoy sharing these whenever the opportunity arises.
Ike, You are a serious collector aren't you ? I'm flabbergasted with your coins !
I sure have spent serious money....
Here's another crude one, a Jefferson nickel, that looks post-apocalyptic. His exaggerated jaw looks morbid. I got it for next to nothing, so some have been purchased cheap.
This poor fellow looks like he could star on the Walking Dead TV series .
That's a nice specimen of the patch, @rooman9 . My father served in the Army for 30 years beginning in 1942, so one of my many collections as a kid was military patches of all sorts. I even remember saving a full color insert from a weekend edition of The Stars and Stripes that I used as a checklist of the many patches I was able to collect. I had all of the early AAF patches and enjoyed them all. Thank you for bringing that memory back to me.
You’re welcome I have one that was a theatre made one in Australia. It’s made of thick Aussie wool and is much more crude.
Trish, Your photos are good & the hobo nickel looks like an old classic example . Members of the OHNS are the best source to attribute hobo nickels. I like the way a clothing pattern was engraved on his jacket & hat .
Welcome to CT. Can you start a new thread and post some of your work on Hobo Nickels?
@Al Kowsky, this is a really cool thread, thanks.
These 2 engines were use during the Bi-Centennial to pull the American Freedom
I would post these pictures to the guys over at the Original Hobo Nickel Society.
dwhiz, Your two locomotive buffalo Hobos are beauties, but that Barber half is in a class by itself ! What a sensational find .
