    Post If you're still on the rabbit-proof fence

    THe Australian $ opened lower against the US $ on Monday morning [in Australia] than it closed on Friday.

    At 0700 AEDT, the Australian dollar was trading at $US0.6195/97, down almost two US cents from Friday's close of $US0.6388/94.

    No need, no need. I'm easy as it is. I was looking at Everything Australian AGAIN, and I revisited a hat I looked at before and decided to pass up then. Anybody have a Banjo Patterson?

    I'm looking at the Blue Mountains ($68.02 US) or the Plainsman ($64.92 US) in bluegrass green at HatsDirect. This could be the day.

    That's a hat I've had my eye on for years, but it's always been one of the priciest of the Akubras - at least as they are offered by USA dealers.

    So I second your question: anyone got one? Photos to post?

    The Banjo is heritage quality felt, the same felt the Fed Deluxe is made of. I presume it has the better quality sweatband as well. That accounts for it's being pricier. But Everything Australian has it for $77.65 US now. I have a heritage fawn colored Fed Deluxe, and I like the hat very well and the color. There is no indication of a 3 month wait on Everything Australian's website for the heritage fawn color.

    Here are my Akubras-

    This is my $10.50 Snowy River with a.....modified Montana crease, sorta.


    Here is a slouch I got for a friend who formerly lived in N.Z.-note the WWII era badge. This hat needed some TLC! It's in good nick now!



    And here's my own slouch with the Australian Royal Artillery badge with a slider 'cos I like to wear the brim down all 'round.


    Of course they both have just the standard safari or military bash.
    Hopefully in a few days I'll be adding a Fed IV to this country-ish collection!

    Bob, What website are you looking at? The only Akubra I see on the Everything Australian website is the Snowy River. Am I missing something? Please post a link. Thanks, Carter
