    Talk to the hat, pal.

    I'm wearing a white cotton t-shirt with a giant NRA (National Recovery Administration) logo printed on it. "We Do Our Part" blah-blah-blah.

    Nice hat and a good trade.
    I know we're not supposed to give URLs for
    current eBay auctions, but there two for
    a copy of this ad right now, both dated to 1941
    (and another dated to 1942).
    Better pictures, too. FYI.
    Personally, I would never want to be a member of any group where you either have to wear a hat or you canít wear a hat.

    I haven't bought any vintage hat ads yet, I should look into some. They take up less space than the hats themselves, and are generally cheaper, too.

    Great looking lid. I love the color of the ribbon.

    Hi Tony!

    If you can get the crown pix from above, it is always an interesting detail to see the execution of design.

    Going OK, soon to be in the big search for a job soon.
