The Hobo Nickel is the American version of an art form that began to appear in the mid-1700s as sailors, travellers and railwaymen whiled away the hours by carving their coins into miniature works of art.
This series of rings by Silver Piston feature a hand-carved Dias de los Muertos Indian head in the style of many Hobo nickels, and the rings can be ordered in either silver or gold.
Ben has had his work featured on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, and many more.
