Hobo Nickels from the 1930s

Hobo Nickels are a form of sculptural art. The nickel was favored due to its size, thickness and softness. Even though the medium was popular amongst hobos due to its cheapness, it is a generic term as it was used by many different kinds of people.

What did they carve them with? That kind of sounds fun…

Except for the fact that I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to deface money

They carved them with rebellion
