Complex and intricate sculptural carvings of American Nickels.  This form of Art is called Hobo Nickels, which makes use of small denomination cons on which the sculptor carves his own work.  Paolo Curio aka (MrThe Hobo Nickels) creates portraits and representations of Historic Figures, Films and Skulls.  We have chosen the last one as it is the most used theme in the Hobo Nickels Art.
Once in the article you can enlarge the image by pressing it (not the first one).  You can then see the amazing detail on such a small coin.
