    Not in the same class as carved coins, but still cool.

    Were they supplied by the mint (as they look)?. Silver coins lost all inscriptions with heavy use: paint? Collectors only I guess if minted or after market.

    Lol, but it's GRS. . .they make engraving equipment. And a bit costly for the run-of-the-mill hobo.
    I can just see the guy on a streetcorner now; "Please help, my gravers are dull, my sandbags leaking..", and anything else he can felt-pen on a scrap of cardboard.
