Am reading Lindholm, Nya Sveriges Historia (History of New Sweden) and there is a description (p. 67) of two objects in a Swedish museum, a war club and a "wolf skin war bonnet".

On the web pages of the museum, I find two objects from North America. The club fits the description very well, but the other one (below) I am not so sure about.

Can this be described as a war bonnet? If not, what is it? Does it seem likely it came from the Andaste/Conestoga?

Edit: or is this the war bonnet? (More: no, it's deer skin, apparently.)
