Bonus Soldier Buffalo Nickel - Reverse Of Bonus Soldier

#54 Bonus Soldier

The subject of this latest carving "Bonus Soldier" is a WWI Doughboy.  The soldier is wearing a classic helmet & uniform.  The carving has a smooth field. The subject of my nickel carving is based on the Bonus March of 1932.  It was the Great Depression & thousands of WWI veterans & families came to Washington D.C. to protest. Their demand was immediate payment of the combat service bonus.  The protest was met by U.S. Military force.  The veterans & families were forced from Washington D.C.

Pigeon Lady

#53 Pigeon Lady

The Pigeon Lady is carved on a 1937 full horn Buffalo Nickel and is shown bundled up for a cool day.  She is wearing coat, scarf & kerchief.  The pigeon she is gently holding is inlaid & carved in 24 karat yellow gold.

I spent a year living & going to school in NY, NY.  In my free time I would often walk & people watch.  In Central Park, in the afternoon, sitting on a park bench was The Pigeon Lady. She would sit & feed the pigeons. She seemed to be there daily, same time, same bench. The pigeons would perch on the bench surrounding her & fly to the ground as she threw the feed.  Often she would have a pigeon climb in her lap or hands.  The pigeons would sense her gentleness & trust her kindness.  To most people she was just some lady in the park, but to the pigeons she was "The Lady."   Submitted to FUN Show 2009
