The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Factual error: When Buster joins the card game in the saloon, he looks at the hand of the player that had just left. Given the circumstances in the saloon, the cards cannot be spot clean and white as fresh snow. Also, they seem to be plastic cards, which did not exist yet back then.

Continuity mistake: When Buster is shot, his hat with the hole in it disappears.
