Milton Baines wearing a coonskin cap.

A coonskin cap was a type of hat worn mainly by children and teenagers in the 1950s and 1960s.

This headgear was a fad inspired by the miniseries Davy Crockett (1954-55) — which was later edited together as the 1955 movie Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier — and the TV show Daniel Boone (1964-1970).

The hat was made of raccoon fur and had a tail that hung over the neck and upper back. Milton Baines was known to wear a coonskin cap.

Emmett Brown's son Verne also wore a coonskin cap quite frequently.
