Just thought I'd share this pin I picked up yesterday.  I believe it's bakelite.  Appears to be a cavalry campaign hat with boots/spurs that dangle from the pin.  There's a little bit of yellow color on the braiding of the hat though you can't see it in the picture.  I thought it was pretty neat.  I was able to get both pins for $5 plus the gas/time it took to pick it up across town.  It was on Craigslist.  Anyway, I like it/them.

Very cool. I've never seen a campaign hat and cavalry boots sweetheart pin before. This is an area a person could collect for years and still turn up new and interesting items. Thanks for showing.

Very cool. I suspect it’s collectible as Bakelite and as sweetheart jewelry. Thanks for posting. Mike

Thanks for the comments thus far.  

 

Paul, here's a pic of the back of the hat and boots.  Obviously, I don't believe it's the original pin, but appears to have been on there awhile.
