    I picked up a copy of COINage magazine for my dad today. The cover had a lead to "hobo" art. I had no idea that at a time hobos carved coins with their art. Check it out. There are a couple of neat shots of carvings on coins with railroad themes- apparently (and obviously) quite collectible.

    I guess that shot I have of Tex-o-bozino's script ain't worth as much now!

    Perhaps what you're holding in yer pocket is worth more than you know? I always check with the wife:oops: .
