Description: Kaiser carvings have become a subject of study by OHNS members to determine if there is the possibilty of specific named carvers amongst the issues. Wilhelm II was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia. WWI German soldier/Kaiser carvings were done by GI's who copied other WWI GI's in places like Hoboken, New Jersey while waiting to ship out to Europe. The smiling man nickel has a smile that doesn't reach his eyes. Bespectaled hoboes display enough specific characteristics that this nickel most certainly could become a named carver - a great coup for the winner of this lot. (Total: 3 coins)
