In 1998, I cut this Beaver out of a Canadian Nickel and soldered a Tie Tack Pin to the reverse. I put it up on eBay as a joke for $2. Seven days later a couple of MIT students had out bid each other to $54. Soon after I had regular sales to MIT and won the "Busy Beaver" award. To this day I advertise this cut as "The joke that changed my life". Still an attractive conversation piece, the Nickel hasn't changed, I have however perfected my technique.
- Standard I finish these with Surgical Steel
- Silver Electroplated Clip-Ons are also available for those that don't have piercings
