Wayne the way he looked at us from the screen for all those years. A finely
detailed deep relief with a soft finish, to eliminate glare and enhance the
portrait. Host coin is a very nice full horn buffalo.

A very deeply carved
relief using the central body mass as a 'canvas' a very detailed and deeply
cut face of a man appears, this is on a 2005 Jefferson nickel.
detailed carving of a traditional Indian 'Spirit Skull' embellished with a
pair of eagle feathers. Notice the contrast of the four different textures.
'All I Got'
Another of the
little head series coin. A clever combination of intense carving and
engraving using the large amount of 'white space' to make the message stand
out. The host coin is a great 1919 full horn buffalo.
'Full Step Jefferson'
more elaborate carving with facial changes, hat and beard hosted on a clean
'full step' Jefferson nickel.
This carved face
seems to emerge from the surface of this Jefferson nickel as if it were
pushing out from inside the coin. An exaggerated character face of a very
old man living inside this nickel.
'Dolphin and Bo'
A whimsical carving of a hobo complete with a bowler hat hitching a ride on a friendly dolphin that is emitting seven 24kt gold air bubbles.
A happy subtle combination of carving and gold inlay. The host coin is a beautiful full horn buffalo.
This coin has both
sides carved each with an elfin face. These two wonderful characters one
with his impish smile and curly topped hat. The
other side is an elf of strong character, powerful nose and determined eyes,
pointed ear thick beard and detailed leather cap.

The face of a 'slick haired' depression
era con man on one side and a singing Italian opera 'harlequin' figure on
the other. There's no correlation, just two different character studies
