Thehobo nickelis asculpturalartform involving the creative modification of small-denominationcoins, essentially resulting in miniaturebas reliefs. Thenickel, because of its size, thickness, and relative softness, was a favored coin for this purpose. However, the term "hobo nickel" is generic, as carvings have been made from many different denominations.

Due to its low cost and portability, this medium was particularly popular amonghobos, hence the name.

This is a 1937 carved hobo nickel. This one is the infamous, "Cat and the Fiddle"! There are several pictures of this one, at different angles to show the depth of the carving.
