Bel Mar Coin Show for 2016

It is almost time for this year’s Coin Show! Click on the Coin Show Tab above for details and to see our Flyer. If you live in Harford County you might have already seen a Flyer at a local Business or Coin Shop or Hobby Shop.

This year a Representative from the ANACS Coin Grading Organization will be at the Bel Mar Coin Show. This is part of a Big Promotion! The ANACS Reps are visiting Coin Shows all across the Country in celebration of their 40th Anniversary.



Hope to see lots of new Friends at this Year’s Bel Mar Coin Show on Saturday May 28th in Aberdeen, Maryland!


One of our Club Members recently purchased a Hobo Nickel from Wils Hobo Coins. If you click on the link it will take you to Wils Facebook Page and you will see some of his handiwork.

Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

The hobo nickel is a sculptural art form involving the creative modification of small-denomination coins, essentially resulting in miniature bas reliefs. The US nickel coin was favored because of its size, thickness and relative softness. However, the term hobo nickel is generic, as carvings have been made from many different denominations.

Due to its low cost and portability, this medium was particularly popular among hobos, hence the name.

There is a Non-Profit Hobo Nickel Society (OHNS) and they have a Guidebook listed on their website:  http://www.hobonickels.org/hobo_guidebook.html

If you do a little research on Google you will find lots of info on Hobo Nickels. And, if after doing some research you are intrigued, like our Club member was, you can find Hobo Nickels for Auction on eBay and on other sites.

Happy Collecting!
