Thanks - I got it on eBay a few years ago. I was looking for proper hobo nickels, and this was in the search results. He (Ortiz) is quite famous, and numbers each of the coins he 'makes' - this being S627 number. It has most of the design filed smooth, then the outline engraved, then coloured in; all takes time - and a nice result! I think it is called Buffy from the television show Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
