The 4th in the Western Skulls series is the US Cavalryman. On the obverse of the silver round is the image of a skeletal figure. This skull is missing an eye, likely lost in combat, and wears a patch over his right eye. The figure is dressed as a US Army Cavalryman wearing the traditional cavalry cap with a crossed-sword insignia. The Western Skulls collection consists of six rounds adapted from the familiar US American Silver Eagle, with a twist. Each is a unique western archetype, rendered as a highly detailed skull.
The common reverse of the American Western Skulls silver rounds feature the design that will be used throughout the series. Referred to as the fried eagle, this image is a clever twist on the heraldic eagle found on the reverse of American Silver Eagle coins. It features the American bald eagle’s skeletal form behind the national shield as it clutches the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other.
