   I'm from Russia and I have over fifteen years of experience in the jewelry industry as a hand engraver-designer. I was a student of Krasnoe Village School of Decorative Metal Processing and by decision of State Qualifying Board I was given a qualification as Engraver-Designer in specialization “Arts and Crafts.” In the year 2002 I came to USA with invitation from a jewelry company as an engraver-designer. This year I've discovered a profound interest in Hobo Nickels and in the past two months I've completed ten pieces. Each one took me around 6-24 hours to complete. I'm looking forward to creating more! ~ Aleksey

From Sketches to Carved Coins
Click to view an enlargement of this photograph.
   You'll do a double take when you see John Schipp's re-carved coins. It's okay, we did too, these coins are so insanely detailed you'd swear they're fake.
   It's obvious you can only get to such a result with tons of patience, dedication and talent, but we were still so curious about the process that I contacted John to clue us in on how he turns coins into amazing art.

Amazing. Thanks for the insight John! We'll be keeping an eye out on your carvings... Hugo • September 20, 2011

  NOT a Simple Matter!  
Click to view an enlargement of this photograph.
   Creation of 2012 OHNS gold tokens is not a simple matter! First, it turns out that no firm will create 18K gold planchets. Next, the firm that is striking our copper and silver tokens has major production/control problems creating 24K gold nickel sized planchets.
   We have found a new firm who will create the needed planchets but it is likely that there will be a $650 tooling charge to make our dies work with their equipment. If this comes to pass then this cost will have to be shared among the number of token orders we accumulate.
   Each gold token will require roughly one quarter ounce... at today's prices the gold cost per token would be roughly $570. The actual price would be determined when Don Haley sets the order date. All individual orders must be prepaid before he makes the final order.
   The plastic holder cost depends upon the number of holder orders accumulated. For example; 15 orders would result in a holder cost of $38 each.
   Don needs everyone to keep him apprised Click to EMail Don Haley. of their desires with regard to their gold token order. Valid phone or EMail information is necessary so he can contact you with a total when he needs pre-payment. Don expects this deadline date to be on or about __1 November 2011__.
