10 Horror Inspired Hobo Nickels by Paolo “MrThe” Curcio

Hobo’s aren’t really famous for much, but apparently they can carve the shit out of a nickel.

Artist, Paolo Curcio (aka  MrThe) isn’t a hobo, but he has taken this artform to a whole new level.  His technique of etching into standard clad coins completely transforms them from nearly useless currency into multilayered portraits of skulls, horror icons, and more. Here’s a small sample of his incredible work below.
