OHNS publication on Newman portal

The Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP), a free online numismatic archive and encyclopedia, has added a selection of Original Hobo Nickel Society (OHNS) publications, including the groups now-quarterly newsletter BoTales.

The OHNS formed in 1992 on the heels of a fledgling collecting area primarily focused on post-mint artist-carved U.S. Buffalo nickels. The group has since grown to include about 450 members, including some from Canada.

In addition to BoTales, the NNP now offers early OHNS auction catalogues from the organization’s annual auction.
