About This Item

Hobo Bert

"Bert" is a modern reproduction of a hobo nickel. Originally, these little coins were carved on indian head nickels by hobos in the years of the Great Depression. They were often used in exchange for a meal or train ride, etc. This one was created by the owner from a pretty poor condition 1936 coin. Please help Bert to make it back to the USA and visit every State in the Union.
