    38 Impressive “Hobo Nickels”

    These nickels certainly don’t feature Thomas Jefferson. First carved in 1913, the heyday of hobo nickels was back in the 1930s, used as a way to pass the time during the Great Depression. Some of the original coins still exist today, while the practice itself has survived into modern times; ironically making some nickels worth hundreds of dollars.
