Title: Exquisite 1889 Morgan Dollar Hobo Carving for 25th Anniversary of OHNS
Header:
Description: This superior double-sided carving by Master Engraver Aleksy Saburov on a 1889 Morgan Dollar celebrates the 25th Anniversary of OHNS. The carving was the winning entry in 2017. The obverse depicts an exquisite caricature of a hobo dressed as a chef carrying a cake topped off with a locomotive inviting us on a journey of hobo nickel art and the celebration of the 25th anniversary. Gold and copper inlay enhance the carving. The reverse is equally impressive, an actual hobo nickel that combines a variety of OHNS Nicknamed carvers such as "Big Nose, "Curly", "Bug Eye" and incorporates a variety of carving techniques. Every time you look at this piece, the more detail you see. This is modern carving at its best. (Total: 1 coin)
