The hobo nickel is a sculptural art form involving the creative modification of small-denomination coins, essentially resulting in miniature bas reliefs. The nickel, because of its size, thickness, and relative softness, was a favored coin for this purpose.

Very nice, at first i thought it was (old lost art form) art made in the year of the coin. Later pictures show otherwise. Still interesting though.
