That's a "Pillbox hat" from the 1950's and 60's, been looking around haven't found one with a Monkey pin though. Or is that an embroidery? Sorry for the two posts. Decided to finally register

So the question is, why is someone sending a red jacki-O (or red hat society) style hat to west virginia. If its "Sold", that looks like he's about to ship it off, ebay style.

Is it just me... When you zoom into the lampshade I faintly see some pink numbers? Or I could just be seeing things..

Here's a close up of the bottom 1/2 of a photograph that's above the projected image. I can't make it out very well, but it kind of looks like a positive contact of photo negatives. I need to work with it more in photoshop.
DH thinks it looks like the scene was shot in a hotel room of some sort because the lamp looks like something in a hotel.

Awesome! You know the screen with the letter keeps flashing me back to one of those overhead - or even a slide projector, cast on the wall. And the pillbox hat is straight outta Jacki O's closet! 60s? (yeah I'm 46, wanna dance?)
So it's confirmed that this is new, and not anything overlooked since the paper printouts? Just so I can clarify. Thanks!

I can't find anything on the hat. I did look up the Chinese Zodiac...year of the Monkey is 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004. Looking into other monkey related stuff.
The pin is positioned oddly on the hat, IMO....the bow would probably be worn in the back, so if it were my hat, I'd put the pin more toward the front.
Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Ok so it's not a couch or a bed. It's a box. And the clothing is a red hat with what appears to be a golden monkey pin. I see packing paper/tissue paper, scissors, packing tape, bubble wrap. Also to the right and above the projected image, it looks like the bottom half of a photograph.
Similar looking golden monkey pin found on an online antique store.
