    Rare 1921-S Host Coin, Classic Subject
    Bearded Man in a Domed Hat

    1921-S Low Mintage Host Coin, Artist Unknown. Just 1,557,000 1921-S nickels were struck -- a nearly impossible date to find with an original hobo nickel carving, much less an Above Average example such as this coin. This domed hat hobo displays finely dressed fields with LIBERTY and the date remaining. Knife-carved details add greatly to the appeal.
    From The Chris Dempsey Collection of Hobo Nickels, Part II.
