    Distinctive Classic Hobo Nickel
    By 'Stout Snout'

    1935 Hobo Nickel, OHNS-Named Artist. The "Stout Snout" nickname was assigned by Chris Dempsey upon discovery of a few examples that match the distinctive style of this classic artist. A high-domed hat with a down-curved brim cannot shelter the overly large nose that earns the OHNS moniker. The distinctive collar and smoothly dressed fields are typical of the artist, seen here on a 1935 nickel with Above Average quality.
    From The Chris Dempsey Collection of Hobo Nickels, Part II.
