Edd,

I can clearly see the head of a lion.

I'm only speculating but it may be a cockade ornament worn of militia headgear.

Indiana, New Jersey and Pennsylvania have all incorporated lions on the insignia of their National Guard regiments, many of which date well into the 18th century.

Indiana seems like a good guess.
