The General Hobo Nickel
Carved on a 1927 Full Horn Buffalo Nickel is my latest carving, "The General." The carving features Johnnie Gray and his beloved Annabelle Lee locked in a loving embrace while riding his prized train. The engraving is based on film artwork used to promote the blockbuster "The General," a 1927 silent film featuring Buster Keaton. Johnnie's tie, train obverse and train windows are 24 karat gold inlay.
