There are countless men who went down in American history as famous gunslingers. Some were good men fighting to keep the peace, while others were ruthless criminals looking for a slice of wealth out of the relatively lawless western reaches of the growing United States. Among the most popular gunslingers is the man Americans knew as Wild Bill Hickock.
Born in Illinois, Hickock was a stellar shot from a young age. Though he never made his way to the far western territories of the American mainland, he made quite a name for himself in the Midwest. Hickocks crowning achievement as a gunslinger came in 1865 when he killed David Tutt in a gunfight with a single bullet from 75 yards away.
Each of the Colorized Proof American Western Skulls Gunslinger Rounds is available in 1 oz silver. Both colorized rounds have a lacquer layer of coloring applied to the image of the Gunslinger on the obverse of the round, generating a different take on the Gunslinger design compared to its proof and antique counterparts.
The obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Proof American Western Skulls Gunslinger Round features the image of a skeletal gunslinger. The design is believed to be based on Clint Eastwoods many famous Western characters. What tips the design off as an Eastwood effigy? The inclusion of that wry smile, wrinkled wink of one eye, and the trademark cigar butt in the mouth.
On the reverse of the American Western Skulls Collection rounds youll find the depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. While this design shares similarities, youll notice the most glaring difference in the bird. Rather than a healthy, full-feathered bald eagle, you see the fried remains of a birds skeleton set behind the shield instead.
