Herr Pickelhaube Hobo Nickel
Carved on a 1937 Full Horn Buffalo Nickel is a WWI (World War One - The Great War) German Soldier wearing a Pickelhaube helmet. The spike was pierced from a second Buffalo Nickel and was carefully soldered onto the helmet using silver solder. There is no visible seam between coin and spike, and this addition to the coin should be very durable. The Soldier, Herr Pickelhaube, has a nicely carved ear, mustache and facial features. The field is clean, and the rim of the nickel has a milligrained edge.
