More info
The hobo nickel is a sculptural art form involving the creative modification of small-denomination coins, essentially resulting in miniature bas relief
Starting in the early 20th century, the nickel, because of its size, thickness, and relative softness, was a favored coin for this purpose
However, the term hobo nickel is generic, as carvings have been made from many different denominations
