Vintage: Davy Crockett flashlight

davy crockett flashlight

Just like the King of the Wild Frontier used.

The Davy Crockett craze was well before my time, but it’s hard to overstate how popular the Disney version of the real-life frontiersman was in the 1950s.

Really, coonskin caps were flying off store shelves.

So what better accessory for a kid than a Davy flashlight?

Online sources date this to 1955 and the United States Electric Manufacturing Corp.
