    I'm so sad to hear that. Loved Davy Crockett and owned a coonskin cap as a kid. :(

    I had one too. Was my uncle's though, originally. You're old.:lol:

    I used to love watching Daniel Boone on TV. Like most 60s tv shows, it's hokey nowadays. And even at 6 years old I could not reconcile Ed Ames as a Cherokee named Mingo.:lol:

    I even had the Daniel Boone lunch box in 1st grade.

    I didn't realize he was that old.

    Davey Crockett was a little before my time, but I used to watch him every week in Daniel Boone

    Character and hat was the same....just the name was different
