Welcome to Please select one of the menu links above.

The art of carving coins dates back to the 18th century. When the Indian Head, or Buffalo nickel, was introduced in 1913, it became popular with coin engravers.
One story is that a hobo would carve a nickel and then trade that nickel for whatever he needed at the time. Food, lodging, a bath or a ride to his next stop or "jump". That's where the term "Hobo Nickel" came from.
My Great Uncle spent time on the hobo trail riding the rails. It's an honor to keep that tradition of the hobo nickel alive.

2013 marked 100 years of the Buffalo Nickel and 100 years of carved Hobo Nickels.
