This 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" folio booklet- The Franklin Mint COLLECTION OF RUGGED AMERICANS Series 1 , First Edition Proof Set, Presented by Husky Oil 1971, has 13 sterling silver commemorative "coins" about the size of a quarter with the following names & images (head & shoulders of individuals) on front and back respectively: 1) Geronimo/ The Apache Tribe (bird design), 2) Black Hawk / The Sauk Tribe (teepee), 3) Sitting Bull/ The Sioux Tribe (buffalo), 4) Wild Bill Hickok/ Marshall, Abilene (Star design), 5) Kit Carson/ K.

Deputy (star)), 7) Bat Masterson/ (top hat & cane), 8) William Clark/ (telescope), 9) Meriwether Lewis/ (surveyor's instrument), 10) Buffalo Bill Cody/ (buffalo head), 11) Sacajawea/ The Shoshone Tribe (pipe with feather), 12) Crazy Horse/ The Oglala Sioux Tribe (feather with ring), and 13) Chief Joseph/ The Nez Perce Tribe (jumping salmon). The silver coins are very shiny & good condition. The folio booklet is solid with binding and in good condition inside with some small light spots & one light scratch. The outside is not as good, as you can see, with some wrinkling and the silver printing of the cover title partially worn, mainly towards the top & right side, with the last part of "Americans" not fully legible. The back cover has reddish-brown color showing through the blue in places. Overall it is in good condition. Unfortunately the shiny coins make it hard to photograph well enough to show sharper details of the relief.
