I grew up playing cowboys and Indians in the 50's. What I remember totally breaking my little heart was never getting one of these.
Somewhere (but not in my belongings) is a photo of me at 4, with a Davy Crockett pistol, wearing a Davy Crockett shirt, Davy Crockett pants, a Davy Crockett hat, and holding a Davy Crockett balloon. I think they entered it in a contest and won a Davy Crockett book, though I was too young to read, and it was written for high school kids or something. We also had Bill Hayes' 45rpm record, which would be worth real money now.
Wow! I just had the Davy Crockett hat. But I also had a cowboy hat and a pistol in a red leather holster. And a tri-cornered hat from Colonial Williamsburg. All in addition to the expected dolls and tea sets and stuff.

Sorry, folks, back on topic...
