OHNS HOBO NICKEL QUALITY
This service for hobo nickels and hobo carvings is provided for members and nonmembers of OHNS. It is an independent opinion of the quality of carvings on US coins.
All submissions are reviewed by two examiners, and each will receive a report form with a description of the carving, the quality grade, the carving technique, data on the host coin, the name of the probable artist, additional comments (such as if original or modern), and a photo.
The cost is $15.00 per coin for members, $25.00 for nonmembers. There is a reduced rate for bulk submissions for members only. Each coin must be accompanied by a submission form (see application above or an issue of Bo Tales), with check made out to OHNS, and mailed insured or Registered to one of the addresses on the submission form.
THE ORIGINAL HOBO NICKEL SOCIETY, INC.
The OHNS is a nonprofit organization, incorporated in the state of Florida, and is dedicated to the study and appreciation of hobo nickels and related carved coins.
ANNUAL OHNS AUCTION
Each January at the FUN Convention in Orlando, Florida, the OHNS holds an auction of hobo nickels and related items for its members. Proceeds are used to generate scholarships for YN’s and OHNS members to attend the annual ANA Summer Conference held each July in Colorado Springs.
Members may consign OHNS authenticated or examined specimens. The consignment fee is 5% and the buyer’s fee is 10% of the hammer price.
