    Great minds on this forum have stated that they own a propeller cap. The one in the photo is one of mine.

    Does anyone else have one? Or a collection thereof?

    I had a beanycopter as a kid. It was a toy tie-in to the Beany and Cecil cartoon. You pulled the chin strap and the propeller flew off the cap.

    I wonder how many kids lost their copter after the first launch.

    'Twas I, although I object to your use of the word "admitted" with its likely implications.
    I'm glad that this classic headgear now finally has its own richly deserved thread here, although it's unfortunate that you should have chosen to start this thread with a photograph of a billed cap which can hardly be considered to be an example of the true classic original.

    Both of mine have bills... I'd go for one of the propeller beanies but I've never seen one of them for sale.

    Come to think of it, what is the original? Beanie prop, or something like the beanycopter model mentioned above?

    Edited original post for accuracy and removal of divisive rhetoric. See original post again.

    Here ya' go. Or, for a couple of bucks more, you can get one with a patch on the front. :D
