The all-new Silver Hobo Nickel Round Series is creating buzz among collectors as the lost art form of hobo carvings returns to coinage after a century’s absence. Mr. The is among the leading hobo carvers today, and is considered a master of skeletal designs in particular.
As the third release in the five-round series, all from Mr. The, the design features of this 1 oz Silver Antique Skulls and Scrolls Hobo Nickel Round take a ghostly turn. Both the primary designs sets on the obverse and reverse feature skeletal forms.
On the obverse, Fraser’s Native American chieftain is visible like never before. Mr. The’s design features a right-profile skeletal figure, with a Victorian-era scroll edge encompassing the design field on this side.
The reverse of each 1 oz Silver Antique Skulls and Scrolls Hobo Nickel Round features the Walking Hobo Mr. The introduced in the previous release of the series, but this time as a ghastly skeletal figure walking the highways and byways of America.
Each of these silver rounds available to you today has an antique finish. Modern technology makes an antique finish possible, giving warmth and depth to the design field and giving the round an aged appearance.
