The unidentified bust with fringed collar on the obverse of this coin is meant to be Chief Big Turtle, ne Daniel Boone (1734-1820). It is not a portrait but an imaginary idealized figure, not in the slightest degree resembling any of the four contemporaneous descriptions of Boone.
On reverse, the pseudo-Boone is represented as with the Shawnee Chief Black Fish (dressed in some other tribe's regalia) in a historically impossible palaver, allegedly discussing the treaty that was to put an end to the nine-day siege of Fort Boones borough, in Transylvania, part of what is now Kentucky. "Boone" is holdings a scroll representing the treaty, together with a musket. Chief Black Fish, who had just adopted Boone as his son (an act which led to Boone being accused of disloyalty), without the expected peace pipe, holds his tomahawk in such a position as to suggest that Boone has just informed him that his fly was open. Behind them are vague suggestions of an embankment and buildings, intended for Boone's blockhouse fort.
Mint mark D or S, on 1935-1938 issues, is placed behind the Chief's heel. We have not found a satisfactory explanation for the phrase PIONEER YEAR, unless that was meant to connect the coin with some publicity releases by the Daniel Boone Bicentennial Commission.
Where normally the bicentennial dates 1734-1934 would be expected, only DANIEL BOONE BICENTENNIAL appears. The reason for this is that when the late 1935-1938 issues came out (August 26, 1935) a supplemental Act of Congress added the original bicentennial date 1934 above PIONEER YEAR, while the date of issue remained at bottom.
