John Schipp : Hobo Nickel Sculptures
The name Hobo Nickel comes from the popularity of the U.S. nickel to hobo’s because they were often the easiest to get. Schipp also finds it popular because of its size, softness, and thickness (I’m still talking about the coins, here). All of these allow Schipp to create new designs on the coin.
