Bearded Man Wearing Hat
Unknown Classic: AboveAve/Ave(H) NoDate-D VF


Final Price: ___$115.50 Mail___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

      Fivaz/Farnsworth: The first thing the viewer notices on this classic carved piece is the bulbous nose. It appears that extra metal was applied to make this feature. Ear partially hidden under the hat which has a bow on the hatband. Punched hair/beard/moustache/eyebrow. Altered mouth; field completely dressed to create a cameo effect. Fransworth feels that the nose detracts from the appearance of this otherwise nice carving.

Unknown Classic: AboveAve NoDate AU


Final Price: ___$264___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

Ear visible; unaltered profile. Subject is wearing a winged collar shirt and a jacket. Farnsworth feels carving may have been enhanced by modern carver. Some of lines are shinny as if carved recently but deeper cuts have dark, older patina.

Man With Firearms LOT 25 Man With Firearms
Bearded Man Wearing Hat
Unknown Classic: Ave(H)/Ave(L) NoDate VG


Final Price: ___$165___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

      Fivaz/Farnsworth: This is a plate coin found on page 14 of the Hobo Nickel Guidebook by Stephen P. Alpert. Subject has a plain crowned hat, moderately curved hat brim and hair apparently done with liner tool. Altered profile, eye and mouth. Field completely dressed, probably with a power tool. Farnsworth stated, “the excessive use of power tools created a 'washed-out' appearance of this otherwise above average carving.” Though both examiners classify this as a modern carving, the consigner obtained it in 1987 as part of a collection of old hobo nickels.
