The movie is set in the early 1880s. When the settlers open their cash box to show Baxter and Hawley the money they've been promised to escort the settlers to Silverado, we see the 1886 Martha Washington $1 silver certificate, the 1917 George Washington $1 legal tender note, the 1907 (or 1922) Michael Hillegas $10 gold certificate, and the 1907 Andrew Jackson $5 legal tender note. The 1917 Washington $1 is distinguishable from other issues by two indicators: the small red seal on the left, and the serial number below the seal, which is not in a dark gray box. The 1907 Jackson $5 is distinguishable from other issues by two indicators: the small red seal on the right, and the small red Roman Numeral V on the left. The 1907 (or 1922) Michael Hillegas $10 gold certificate is distinguishable from the 1922 Ulysses Grant $50 gold certificate by the shape of the white shirt in the portrait at center, and by the lower-right corner border around the encircled number.

Silverado is damn good fun. Being a small fan of the Western genre, I felt this was the most refreshing one I've seen in a while. The genre had pretty much died, but came back in Silverado, and it felt so fresh.
The plot is simple and cliche, I think it's paying homage to the classics. It sticks within the Western boundary and does its thing.
The cast is pretty good, and well known, but in 1985, these actors were just Hollywood virgins. I was surprised by John Cleese, he stuck out like a sore thumb, but I enjoyed his performance. You have Costner hamming it up, and Jeff Goldblum was cool. Scott Glenn was probably the best. Hell, Glover was pretty good, too.
The direction is wonderful as is the editing, the film moves along at a decent pace. I wish Lawrence was a more prominent director, he deserves more success.
The film score is very nice, fits the film perfectly.
Overall, one of the best Westerns in the last 25 years.
