These are pre-war NOS Borsos with at least the hint (or more) of a verifiable provenance, no? Many would say these represent the zenith of 2o'th Century hat making, doggone near a "Holy Grail", IMHO. They seem to me to verge close to "it belongs in a museum" territory.
Or am I mistaken are these more common than I think?
