In 1881, some of the most famous names in the Old West participated in the Shootout as OK Corral. Wyatt Earp, his two brothers and Doc Holliday squared off against the Clanton-McLaury gang. When the dust cleared, the entirety of the Clanton-McLaury gang was dead and the Earp Brothers and Holliday were all wounded. The survivors were charged with murder but were found not guilty during their trial. This 1881 nickel recalls one of the most famous events to take place in the Wild West.
