   SILVER ROUND                        The Indian Skull at a Glance:

Kicking off the 2017 Silver Hobo Nickel collection is Roman Booteen’s adaptation of Albrecht Durer’s 1513 “Knight, Death and The Devil”. Intricately detailed on a 1921 Morgan silver dollar, this masterpiece takes us back to the times of magic and superstition. On a finely muscled mount, our brave knight journeys through an otherworldly valley; beasts and ghastly figures lunge and leer at the rider, while hunting dogs clamor at his feet, creating an eerie sense of foreboding.

The reverse design was also originally featured on a Morgan silver dollar, creating a rare “double obverse” Silver Hobo Nickel. Inspired by the mythology that surrounds trees, a twisted and ghoulishly tree represents all that makes us wary on a dark night in the woods. From the tree’s gaping mouth reaches a fist clasping a snake, while endlessly entwined serpents coil around the trunk and branches. Entangled in the roots lie a sword, skull and quiver of arrows, symbols often used to represent death.
