Do kids still wear Davy Crockett hats?

Ben Franklin did.
My daily morning visitor may volunteer.

On the road, back Monday

Don't know about now, but I had one back in '55 or thereabouts, and considered ownself the epitome of cool.

Recall reading an article that said Crockett might not have worn coonskin: it cited contemporary material that referred to his "distinctive cap", with no ID as to critter of origin

I've got three who fish out of my garbage I'd be willing to offer up if your milliner is game.

Nope. If they were available, I'd have one. My Sam Snead Porkpie straw did roll in.
