The American West was a truly unique place in world history. Surprisingly, Americans arent the only ones familiar with this lawless time and place in the nations history, as the lore and myths of the Wild West have permeated storytelling around the globe. The wide open expanses and lack of authority brought all manner of misfits to the region.
To keep control, colorful characters were needed to fill the law enforcement void as town marshals and county sheriffs. Just like those colorful characters of old, the figure on the 1 oz Colorized Proof American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Silver Round is captured on this round with a colorized lacquer layer. The sheriffs hat is blue, his badge remains silver, and the wood stocks of his rifle have a natural brown hue.
On the obverse of the Colorized American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Silver Round is the depiction of an Old West Sheriff, in skeletal form of course to fit the series. He wears a large cowboy hat with his sheriffs badge dead center. Issued by Tombstone, Arizona Territory, the badge gives this undead lawman the right to bring to justice any neer-do-well looking for trouble among law-abiding citizens.
The reverse of the 1 oz Colorized Proof American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Silver Round depicts the heraldic eagle of the United States. With the national shield, olive branch, and arrows all in the design serving as a familiar point of reference, you might notice something a bit amiss. The bald eagle itself is fried and lacking feathers. Its only fitting that the American Western Skulls Collection have the skeletal remains of the bald eagle for this design.
All rounds in the American Western Skulls Collection from Osborne Mint have individual serial numbers engraved on the edge, and ship in plastic capsules accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
