    Well, it was a lot of work to change all those stickers.

    I don't know that it is the original sticker. I've seen hats with all kinds of price stickers. I have a Borsalino with the original price crossed out and marked to half-price.
    Honestly I think its 50's-60's but the hat stayed the same during that period and thats the most generic liner sweatband and price label to be found. Probably could have been $20.00 from original shop through the 60's, 70's as a mark down.

    Now I follow your logic (and I don't disagree).

    Expanding the discussion a bit, Have you collected data on the more or less common American retail prices of basic Borsalinos through the decades?

    Its a good idea for a project. I've been too cheap to delve into the pervasive "pay per view" ad listings.
    Price stickers can however be like boxes and loose receipts---hard to know if they are the originals.

    Too cheap?! Dude, I find that hard to believe. Still, I do follow what you mean. Someone around here must must subscribe to some of these data bases. It would be an interesting project. Nudge nudge hint hint ...

    hey fella's, i haven't yet actually shown the original price that is in the hat, but will post a pic as soon as i can get a close up show that isn't blurry, which means using my DSLR. it's not actually a sticker, it's physically attached to the sweatband.

    appreciating the conversation, nonetheless.

    It would also be helpful to see a photo of the Borsalino paper tag behind the sweatband (rear side) . It should have the size and model information. Should look something like this.

    If its an OPS price tag then you have a 1951-3 date(one of the few that is actually adhered to the sweatband at original supplier)

    that's it, except mine is $20, that's exactly the same tag, all those letters and numbers are the same as mine.

    so if i understand correctly, mine must be a 51-53 then. nice!

    thanks for the help rlk, much appreciated
