Helene Hobo Nickel
This hobo nickel, named "Helene," is carved on a 1929 Full Horn Buffalo Nickel. Helene has beautiful facial features and a finely coiffed hairstyle. Her elegant appearance suggests a roaring 20's (1920's) flapper look or Roman/Greek feeling. She has 24 karat yellow gold flowers in her hair and is wearing a dangle earring set with a .005ct (.005 carat) diamond. This engraved coin field is clean and the carving is toned for contrast.
