Rewards are coming!

Comment

I just sent off the raw materials for the nickel rewards, and I gotta say, they are going to look fantastic! Thank you for your patience as we finish up the last few details of the movie, polish up the rewards packages, and get ready to roll out the film in just a few more weeks!

With infinite gratitude,

Adam

    Inspired by the $25.20, or 504 nickles donated, literally, By JR Ketelsen of Pueblo, CO, who ever so cleverly cashed in the nickels from his coin jar, and kindly donated them to our cause! Should you do the same, and donate any amount more than $10, or 200 nickels, we will send you a 2013 OHNS/FUN elongated penny/nickel set... and that ain't no crappy jefferson nickel, that is a genuine BUFFALO, hand rolled and then counter-stamped with the initial NN (see pic under REWARDS)! That's for "A Nickel and A Nail" pardner! If you have already pledged, do not fret, you will get a set too, but if you want to cash out your nickels for me, I certainly won't stop you!

    Perhaps you'd prefer a handsome and stylish T-shirt instead of a hobo token... That is quite alright indeed. Just pledge your 1,000 nickels here and you will receive a fantastic "Nickel/Nail" t-shirt, screened by Adam Leech himself! Also includes all lower rewards. (DVD, stickers/buttons, gratitude, and name recognition!)

    At $50, or a cool 1,000 nickels, you will be the proud recipient of one of only 100 "Nickel/Nail" hobo tokens. Minted directly over authentic U.S. Buffalo Nickels by Adam Leech, with the assistance of the fine folks at Eureka Minting (formerly Gallery Mint!), the genuine hobo token will be designed and carved, hobo style, by Adam Leech in the spring of 2013. Ltd to 100 pieces, plus test strikes, and commemorative and error sets. You also get everything from the lower levels too! (Token, movie, stickers/buttons, gratitude, AND name recognition!)

    For $100, a princely 2,000 nickels, you will receive one of the aforementioned "Nickel/Nail" tokens, however instead of a counter struck buffalo, it will be minted over a genuine silver WW2 nickel, and will be limited to an edition of just 25 (plus test strikes, commemorative and error sets). Again, this is surely destined to become a part of "cinenumismatic" history! Also includes all lower rewards, except the buffalo token. (Silver token, movie, stickers/buttons, gratitude, and name recognition!)

    For a scant $250, or 5,000 nickels, you can take an informal group hobo nickel carving course, presented by Adam Leech, in Colorado Springs, CO. Details will be determined depending on response and participant scheduling demands, but the "course" will cover basic hobo nickel history, tools, and technique, and can accommodate up to 6 students. Come take a "stab" at hobo nickel carving, Leech style! Must be able to visit Colorado! Also includes the DVD, sticker, buttons, and all that jazz!

    For $500, (now that'sa spicy 10,000 nickels!) you will not only receive an "Associate Producer" credit and imdb listing, but you will also be the proud owner of one of only 5 complete commemorative "Nickel/Nail" token sets.

Cine-numistmatist-astic! Again, at this level we will hook you up with movies, stickers, buttons, and gratitude by the bucketful!

    For $500 (or 10,000 nickels), I, Adam Leech, will personally, and with great care, carve any image that you so desire, into any nickel that you so desire. My previous carvings have sold regularly for between $200-300, and one recently sold for $500. Your coin, whatever you wish it to be, will be featured in the final film, along with your name listed as an "Associate Producer" and be listed on imdb.com. We will also hook you up with a bunch of the other rewards just for good measure!

    I may be dreaming of the "Big Rock Candy Mountain" here, but if you really want to give me 100,000 nickels, aka $5K, to help make this the best damn Hobo movie ever made, not only will I mint you an absolutely unique, one of a kind, never to be minted again, solid GOLD "Nickel/Nail" hobo token, but I will also give you credit as thee producer "El Hobo Numero Uno," or whatever title you care for... This most precious token would be yours and yours alone, and I wouldn't even strike a secret one to keep for myself! You will also receive just about as many of the Rewards 2, 4, and 5 as I can throw at you, with heaps and mounds of gratitude for the rest of my days on Earth... And you better watch out, because I might just try to give you a big fat kiss on the mouth!
