1910 Edward VII Penny, S.3990, Engraved Into Racing Jockey, Trench Art, Hobo Nickel

A most unusual engraved coin which is most likely World War I “trench art”, and is in the style associated with later US “hobo nicklels”. The king’s portrait has been skillfully engraved to give the king a horse racing jock’s cap and handlebar moustache. 

I have provided high-resolution close up photos so you can decide on a grade for yourself.
