    My 70s-80s-ish Allesandria has a label with 82-72114. 1982 seems plausible.

    Will have to defer to Dr. C. for an accurate diagnosis, but my sense is the dated tags appear during the decade before the factory relocation.

    I think were right before, Alan. I was looking at some tags what you said earlier makes sense.

    I managed to get a couple of quick pics before the camera battery ran out.

    Here is the tag and the second 3 while faded in the pic can be seen IRL... Although I don't know if these numbers mean anything at all ..



    As usual the color of the felt is a bit darker IRL....



    The felt on this one feels lighter or thinner than the others I have ....

    That is one sharp-looking hat. I didn't know it came in that color -- a blue-tinged gray, like Akubra's Moonstone, right? The gray in the pic on Bencraft's site is a very light silvery gray.

    I got this one from Aureliano who in turn bought it from Bencraft - last year, I think. I have no reason to believe that the color is not the one currently offered on Bencraft's site. The color in my photographs is pretty close to the actual felt color, a cool lighter grey. Note, however, that it does have a very faint greenish undertone. The pic on Bencraft's site is a little too light, perhaps.
    I don't own any Akubras, but from what I've seen on the FL, Moonstone appears to be a little darker than the Film's grey version.

    This is not an original label. If the Borsalino name is on the side of the paper label it usually means early fifties or older. There are anomalies but those hats might have been modified along the way. I have a good idea with Echter Borsalinos because they are often date stamped.

    "This is not an original label."

    Right on all counts. Bencraft, last year. A bit of green. Website shot a bit too light.
