Another two-lot offering, both of which portray the typical hobo nickel carvers subject, a bearded man wearing a derby. The first original specimen has seen a bit of circulation which, in a way, mutes the work done and softens the overall features. The subject has a stubbled beard, moustache and hair, and the ear resembles a boxer's "cauliflower" ear. The field is nicely smoothed. The second offering in this lot also an original carving, is interesting in that the bearded man's ear overlaps the rim of the nicely formed hat. A lightly stippled field adds nice eye appeal to this coin.
