The United States Cavalry units of the US Army were modeled after the dragoons of the King’s Army (British Army) fielded during the Revolution. In the decades following independence, the US Army employed Cavalry on the frontier to guard outposts and swiftly cover vast stretches of territory between outposts, settlements, and the original states on the East Coast.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Proof American Western Skulls Cavalryman Silver Round is the skeletal image of a US Cavalry soldier. He wears the common hat provided troops of the day with a cavalry insignia of crossed long swords on the hat. This particular soldier has seen his fair share of battles given he’s lost an eye and wears a patch to cover the loss.
The reverse of all Proof American Western Skulls Cavalryman Rounds bears the common image used in the collection. This deathly take on the heraldic eagle of the United States replaces the bald eagle with the skeleton of the bird behind the national shield.
