Revealing mistake: When the Marquis meets West at the door, the landscape behind him has a give-away flaw: there are prominent wrinkles visible in the cloth backdrop "sky."

Factual error: The coin Artemus hands West is a Morgan silver dollar. It's no coincidence that the actor's thumb covers the date on the coin in the inserted close-up. The series is set during Grant's presidential term in the early 1870s, and Morgan dollars weren't minted until 1878, after Grant had left office.
