Halloween is an awesome source of inspiration for hobo nickel artists. This spooktacular hobo nickel, entitled Nightmares of the Fall, was engraved on a 1936 Full Horn Buffalo Nickel by Russian-born, New Jersey-based engraver-designer Aleksey Saburov. All of the engraving was done by hand and the piece was finished with 24-karat gold, silver and copper inlay.
It’s currently up for auction on ebay.
