    A Superior 'Bo' Carving of His Friend and Mentor, Bert Weigand

    This Superior carving by George Washington "Bo" Hughes is one of the keys that every knowledgeable hobo nickel collector wants ... a carving by Bo of his friend and mentor, Bert (Weigand). Bert taught Bo how to carve hobo nickels, and because of this their techniques are similar. Typical long, flowing hair and beard, a deep part in the hair, and Bert's undeniable facial features make this a No. 1 acquisition for any hobo nickel enthusiast. Illustrated on page 47 of Del Romines' second book. A wonderful opportunity--don't miss it!
    Accompanied by an OHNS certificate.
    Ex: OHNS Auction # 12, lot 6.

    From The Troy Wiseman Collection, Part Two.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 661260)
