Hobo Nickel Souvenir Necklace
This Hobo Nickel engraving was inspired by an original coin dated 1936, down to the hand engraved detail of “LIBERTY” which appears on the original nickel. The face of the President was carved into a skull with a beaten up old fedora atop his head. Details on the side feature a shield with three crossed arrows for security and protection. Hobo Nickels date back to the 18th century when altering the face of the President was a popular art form amongst hobos, creating a low cost (twas just a nickel) and patience to create this masterpiece.
The charm is approximately 1 x 3/4 inch and comes on a 24 inch chain.
Available in Solid Brass + Sterling Silver
