    Since hobos themselves are from outer space, the subject of this nickel shouldn’t be surprising.

    As a numismatist I couldn’t think of doing this to a vintage coin.
    As a miniature sculpor, I’m about to bust out my jewelers tools and attack my coin collection.

     Hmmm. The Indian/Buffalo nickel is maybe the best coin the US ever minted.

      I like the Mercury dimes better.  The buffalo nickels (that I had cheap access to) mostly had their dates worn off, which made it really hard for a kid. Plus, a guy with wings on his head?

    One evening while walking south on Spadina ave towards Dundas st. , in Toronto, a raggy man  approached me and in his palm he had very large shiny dollar coins. He told me they were 5 dollar Canadian coins and I could have one for 10 dollars. I said, ‘Gosh ok’ cause is seemed like a real bargain. 

    The next day I took said coin to the bank and asked the teller how much is this 5 dollar coin worth. He replied it was worth 5 dollars. I laughed and told him I bought it for 1o bucks, which made  him laugh. It was a good laugh all around.

    What’s on the other side?  A dismembered buffalo?
