An interesting piece

Now, I'm not sure it is a hood ornament, but I would like to know what it is. Any help would be appreciated.

    It doesn't look like a fleur de lys...

    I think you may have stolen King Kahuka's tribal feather-thingy... Commented Jan 13, 2012 at 5:22
  • @Coyote I was trying to think of something to liken it to. It kind of looks like the top half of a fleur-de-lis, if you squint your eyes.

  • LOL, ok. PeterDC seems to be right... It's a feather ornament, it doesn't look like the ones on medieval helmets so it might be one of the tribal ones.

It's appeared in a number of sets, most with pirate, castle, or western themes and sometimes as an extra part. It's sometimes packaged in a "Plume Wheel" (i.e. still in a circular runner with some cattle horns), and is typically used for islander minifigs:

    Thanks for the identification. I now completely remember these from the Lego Racers game.
