This superb "Flat Nose" classic carved nickel was recently found in Ancon, Balboa, Panama and subsequently sold on eBay for $349.27.

The Seller pondered what it was doing there in Panama. Joyce Ann Romines acknowledged the assistance of Joaquin "Pacheco" Monserrat (1921−1996), a collector of Hobo nickels, who was a TV personality in Puerto Rico... one of the most known and loved hosts of children's programs since the 60's until the 90's.

Thus we know classic carved nickels were valued and exported beyond our U.S. borders well before the genesis of eBay marketing on the Internet. ~ V-Dubya
