@jerry, as I recall, our own @badger mint is one such expert although I am sure there are others here too. You could also hop over to http://www.hobonickels.org/ for more information.

Posted the pics on the Hobo Nickel Society's FB page and got this response and 3 likes. I think he is more than qualified to give an opinion.

Very cool. One side of the Buffalo world I haven't dug into, but is quite interesting. He would certainly be the guy to receive feedback from!

I recall that Chris bought THE most expensive hobo at auction a few years ago .... 25k or so!

Chris and his brother are great guys. Anyone passing through Erie, PA would do well to visit their massive coin and jewelry store.

One last confirmation:

Hi Steven:

I can confirm that this is absolutely an original Hobo Nickel.
