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.

I love this movie, so much that I finally got tired of renting it and bought a copy. I tell anyone who asks that it's "...the western for 12-year-old boys of all ages." I'd guess that women would enjoy it also, if for no other reason than the superb male cast. I can't think of a film which has a cast with greater depth. I love the humor woven through the episodes of action and buddyhood, and nearly fell out of my seat laughing when John Cleese first appeared on screen. His first line is an all-time great, right up there with Tommy Lee Jones' "My my, what a mess" in The Fugitive (I won't quote it, in case you haven't seen the film). If you want to be thoroughly entertained for a couple of hours, and don't require powerful social import in your viewing choices, I'd recommend Silverado strongly. Actually, the relationship of Danny Glover to the main protagonists IS socially important, so enjoy that too.
