A Heisenberg coin would be awesome.

Thanks for that,I need more practice on portraits,and they dont seem as tortuous as before. There are some cool looking images of him on the net.

I also make counter stamped coins,which can be sold more cheaply,this would be a good subject.
cheers Shaun

shaun , your work is beautiful. how long have you been doing this? do you attend the hobo nickel carvers convention in florida? and what words of advice would you give to someone intrested in learning this art?

Thanks for the nice comment.
I've been seriously practicing for just over two years.
I'm from the UK,I am a member of the OHNS,maybe one day I will go to the FUN show.I did send some nickels there for a donation for the OHNS.

Getting into carving,is just make a start. Airgravers and microscope,speed up the learning process,but they are expensive.There is a pain barrier,you have to go through,but each coin you carve will help the next.It's like learning to play a musical instrument,you need to practice regularly.
Sam Alfano has some really good videos on youtube,on hand sharpening gravers,and push engraving. Coins were made with basic tools for 100's of years,so anything is possible.
