Miniature Sculpture on Coins

This is a quick post to share this (slightly old but still awesome) Colossal link about miniature bas relief sculptures created on coins. The practice leads back to 1800's and became more popular during the Depression era when people carved into Buffalo nickels--these were known as Hobo Nickels.  I just thought they were cool and that you might appreciate seeing them too. Be sure to read the Colossal article for more photos and info.
