    I have recently acquired another beautiful Borsalino Allessandria .It is unreeded and on the sweatband is has

    *RAPALLO* stamped in gold...... Anyone know what that stands for ???

    My searching skills leave a lot to be desired....

    The hat is a dark Charcoal Grey color, almost black with 1 3/4 inch black ribbon.....

    The numbers on the paper tag are :

    3397 9982 7 1/4

    Are we still going with the thought that the year is the first two numbers, that is 1933 ??

    I don't think so... not in 1933. I hope you'll share pictures.

    Alan's right about the numbers. Rapallo is located in northern Italy, famous for its harbor and Castles. Borsalino used town or location names as models in some of its hats. Allesandria, Torino, Rapallo, Como, Bellagio are some examples that come to mind.

    I read quite a few posts with different thoughts on dating but I don't think it was ever actually determined how to date a Borsalino ( speaking of the 30's, 40's, 50,s)

    Yes I am way behind in my picture taking and posting....

    I have to get myself in gear and do that...

    I will post some of this one and the other ones I have recently acquired....
