Temple's crown: Relating to Masonic conspiracy theory?

Shaft and feather: Arrow? Metaphorical or literal?

Four corners: Southwest U.S.?

A random guess: Forcing Native Americans onto reservations.

some funeral procession of a State dignitory, perhaps president of US.

Four corners bearing only one => Carried on in coffin by four people perhaps,

Weapons of war state the case => gun salute to the dead

That was all i could think of...perhaps i am reading too much

On the reverse side of the U.S. dollar bill can be seen an unfinished pyramid (stone) and the U.S. seal, which incorporates a coat of arms (shield) on an eagle, these symbols on both sides of the word "ONE." Above the pyramid is the eye of providence (God's will). The eagle is clutching 13 arrow shafts in one tallon and 13 olive branches for peace in the other, all representing original states. On the obverse side is good ol' George (the first) surrounded by the number one in each of the four corners.

Dollar bill

thanks to Ventum with the "national seal" guess

Good work. Fell quickly as I suspected.
