    Summer Seminar Carving nickels and making friends By Samuel Ernst My name is Samuel Ernst and I was privileged to receive a YN scholarship from Central States Numismatic Society to attend the ANA’s 2012 Summer Seminar. The class I took “Coin Carving 101: Creating the Modern Hobo Nickel” was taught by Joe paonessa and Ron Landis. By the first day of class, I could tell it was going to be the most hands-on class that I had ever taken. There were eight students in the class, including me and two other YNs. The first day we made our tools. Everyone got six metal engraving tool bits and six wooden handles. First, we hammered the handles onto the metal bits. Then, we removed the excess metal from the top so the

    over time, ending at 5:30 p.m. instead of 4 p.m. Day two went very well. I started on my first nickel. It took me awhile to get the hang of my tools, but I kept working. By the end of the day, I had my very first hobo nickel. I really surprised myself at how well it turned out. 1 expected it to look like a bunch of scratches, but it really looked good. The instructors said I did a great job. Joe paonessa said that last year w'hen he taught the class, no one had finished a nickel by the second day, so everyone in this year’s class was way ahead of the game. That day, Dave London, another hobo nickel carver, stopped by to visit our class. He was impressed with everyone’s progress and gave insightful tips. Another local carver, Adam Leech, owner of the Leechpit, a Colorado Springs vintage store, cam

There were still several hours left of class and 1 wasn’t sure what 1 wanted to do. I decided that I would use the time available to get as far as I could on my last nickel. I was able to chisel the outline and begin to shave away extra metal when it was time to leave. I helped Mr. paonessa put away the tools, lamps and other things we used during class. Then I hung around afterward, not really wanting to leave but knowing that I needed to. So I said goodbye to all the great people that I had gotten to know over the past week. Walking away from my classroom I felt a longing to go back and carve for hours more, but 1 knew I couldn’t and consoled myself with the knowledge that by rece

    an one really enjoy the hobby if one isn’t educated about it. That is one reason I am so impressed with the importance CSNS places on numismatic education. As president of a local club and a state organization, I appreciate the CSNS DVD, book and speaker programs for member clubs and the educational seminars. They’re great resources. Monday morning I had breakfast with ANA Gov. Joe Boling and Joe paonessa of the Badger Mint. I passed around my “Sower” collection and to my amazement, everyone was fasci- nated by it. I have to admit 1 went to Summer Seminar with a bit of fear and trepidation, knowing I was in WAY over my head, but the people there were all so approachable and friendly, my fears were soon dispelled. Tuesday morning I had breakfast Road trip continues on Page 30 The Centinel I Fall 20

    Summer Seminar Carving nickels and making friends By Samuel Ernst My name is Samuel Ernst and I was privileged to receive a YN scholarship from Central States Numismatic Society to attend the ANA’s 2012 Summer Seminar. The class I took “Coin Carving 101: Creating the Modern Hobo Nickel” was taught by Joe paonessa and Ron Landis. By the first day of class, I could tell it was going to be the most hands-on class that I had ever taken. There were eight students in the class, including me and two other YNs. The first day we made our tools. Everyone got six metal engraving tool bits and six wooden handles. First, we hammered the handles onto the metal bits. Then, we removed the excess metal from the top so the

    over time, ending at 5:30 p.m. instead of 4 p.m. Day two went very well. I started on my first nickel. It took me awhile to get the hang of my tools, but I kept working. By the end of the day, I had my very first hobo nickel. I really surprised myself at how well it turned out. 1 expected it to look like a bunch of scratches, but it really looked good. The instructors said I did a great job. Joe paonessa said that last year w'hen he taught the class, no one had finished a nickel by the second day, so everyone in this year’s class was way ahead of the game. That day, Dave London, another hobo nickel carver, stopped by to visit our class. He was impressed with everyone’s progress and gave insightful tips. Another local carver, Adam Leech, owner of the Leechpit, a Colorado Springs vintage store, cam

    his wore the ink off the high surfaces and left the recessed areas dark. It gave my skull a creepy, dark appearance. There were still several hours left of class and 1 wasn’t sure what 1 wanted to do. I decided that I would use the time available to get as far as I could on my last nickel. I was able to chisel the outline and begin to shave away extra metal when it was time to leave. I helped Mr. paonessa put away the tools, lamps and other things we used during class. Then I hung around afterward, not really wanting to leave but knowing that I needed to. So I said goodbye to all the great people that I had gotten to know over the past week. Walking away from my classroom I felt a longing to go back and carve for hours more, but 1 knew I couldn’t and consoled myself with the knowledge that by rece
