Sorta cool, but I’m not sure I see the point in owning Hobo Nickels.

My first thought, before completely reading the blurb, was that it’d probably be pretty easy to carve up some phonied-up vintage/authentic hobo nickels and pass them off as the real thing.

My second thought, upon finishing the blurb, was that there being such a thing as 80s/90s “early modern hobo nickel artists” is demoralizing.

“…we have just landed upon the outpost of death. My soul is puking.”
