A first year of issue 1913-P (T-1) coin was used for this original carving by an unknown artist. Generally speaking, the date/mintmark of a host coin doesn't enter into the value equation of a hobo nickel.
The prime factor is the quality of the carving. Added to this is the subject and various features. Also of prime importance is whether or not the carving can be identified as a known-by-name artist (such as "Bo").
This subject has a flat derby, a large ear and nicely stippled hair and beard.
