The United States Cavalry was a horse-mounted unit of soldiers first formed as Continental Light Dragoons during the Revolutionary War. By the time America was expanding westward before and after the Civil War, the US Cavalry had become an important component of the military. Cavalry helped maintain communication across vast distances in an era before telegraph, rail, and phone lines existed. Cavalry also offered speed and flexibility on the battlefield.
All of the 5 oz Antique American Western Skulls Cavalryman Silver Rounds in this listing ship to you sealed in a protective plastic capsule. Your purchase includes a Certificate of Authenticity that is individually numbered and matches the unique serial number found on the edge lettering of each individual round.
Further, the antique polish applied to these 5 oz American Western Skulls Cavalryman Rounds gives them the appearance of ancient coinage. The heirloom quality of these rounds has a rich visual appeal that leaves the viewer believing this round might have originated in the Wild West Era itself!
On the obverse of the 5 oz Antique American Western Skulls Cavalryman Silver Round is the skeletal design of the US Cavalry soldier. Cavalrymen typically wore brimmed hats with an insignia of crossed swords on the cap and a ribbon around the hat just above the brim. On the bottom of the design field are two more crossed cavalry swords in keeping with the design theme for the series.
The reverse of the 5 oz Antique Cavalryman Silver Round features the fried eagle. This is a deadly take on the heraldic eagle of the United States. You’ll still find the constellation of 13 stars above the eagle’s head, the US national shield, the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace. What you won’t find is a single feather remaining on this dead bird.
