A nice eye appealing original carving by an unknown artist dubbed "Sharp Ear" by the Original Hobo Nickel Society (OHNS). Many original hobo nickels were carved on first year of issue 1913 Buffalo nickels, this one on a Type 2 host coin. Beautiful detail on the hat, hatband, ear and beard. A bow tie adds to the charm of this specimen.
