There was a tiered system of law enforcement in the American West, much as there is today. Although fewer in number and covering vast distances, these lawmen worked together to keep the peace between settlers, Native American tribes, and the criminals that sought refuge in the West’s expansive reaches.
Local policing was handled by town marshals, elected by the populace and given the power to hire deputies. US Marshals, though often used interchangeably in folk lore with sheriffs, were actually federal government employees with jurisdiction across the country to pursue criminals on federal charges. Sheriffs were chosen to police countywide, and in some states had the authority to cross county lines within the state in pursuit of justice.
All 5 oz Antique American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Rounds in this listing are available inside protective capsules with a Certificate of Authenticity. The included COA has a serial number matching the exact number edge-lettered on the round itself.
On the reverse of all American Western Skulls Collection silver rounds you’ll find the fried eagle. This design is similar to the heraldic eagle of the US, with 13 stars, the heraldic shield, and the bird clutching arrows and olive branches. However, this fried eagle is a mere skeletal figure of the American bald eagle.
The obverse of the 5 oz Antique American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Round features the Old Sheriff image. With an antique polish, the intricate details of this sheriff design are enhanced and the round itself appears as old as the Wild West itself. The sheriff is similar to the Jolly Roger image, with a skeletal figure wearing a cowboy hat and boasting a pair of crossed rifles below his chin.
