Each of these 1 oz Antique Jefferson Skull Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds has a different finish than the other releases in this fifth design. Rather than just a standard proof striking, these rounds have an antique finish that creates subtle warmth in the appearance of the design and adds depth to the overall details.
The reverse side of the 1 oz Antique Jefferson Skull Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds offers a clever twist on the Buffalo Nickel design. It depicts a short hobo walking along with his walking stick, corncob pipe, and over-the-shoulder sack in the foreground. The train in the background rumbles down the track, puffing out smoke that looks eerily similar to the back of a buffalo, as found on the original Buffalo Nickel.
On the obverse, is the right-profile portrait of a smiling skull. It is reflective of the 2005 special-edition Westward Journey commemorative Jefferson nickel released by the US Mint. You’ll notice similarities between the designs, with the skull offering the obvious diversion from the original design.
All 1 oz Antique Jefferson Skull Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds ship inside of Air-Tite plastic capsules for long-term protection of your investment. Additionally, there is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity included. The number matches the edge lettering of the serial number on these rounds, where you’ll also find engravings of the weight, purity, and metal content.
The Hobo Nickel Silver Round Series has a total of five silver rounds, each with three different options. In addition to these 1 oz Antique Jefferson Skull Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds you’ll notice a 1 oz Proof and 5 oz Antique version also available.
