Title: Rare 1918/17 D Buffalo Nickel
Description: This hobo nickel is well known by hobo nickel and coin collectors alike not for its art work, but for the fact that it was done on a very scarce over date nickel. A hat, hair, moustache and beard were created with a series of simple punch marks on what would have been a problem free VF coin! It was written up in BoTales Vol. 3 No. 3, 10/94 by Bill Fivaz wondering what happened to it. Here it is! Despite the use of this basic technique, the rarity of this nickel in this grade makes it a very desirable addition to any collector who wants something out of the ordinary as the center piece of his or her collection. (Total: 1 coin)
