    Stetson Beaver 100




    Advertisements
    Here is one I just picked up. Marked a "Beaver 100" and pretty much identical to a "One Hundred". Custom made for Ray Kealer, possibly Mayor Ray Kealer of Long Beach, Ca from 1957 - 60, since it came out of California. The case is white inside instead of red. The leather of the case is a darker brown and more natural finish that the other case I have. Same plastic inserts to hold the hat. Unfortunately this hat has had some moth damage and will either need some felt transplants or a 2" ribbon.

    I couldn't find any past references to a Beaver 100. Anyone seen one before? Also haven't seen the white interior case.

    Put a 2" ribbon on that thing and it should be fine
    Boy, I got vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals.

    I am with the boys on this one, a wider ribbon will hide the moth trails.

    I have one. So far, I did take my "beaver 100" to be a later version of the one-hundred.
    This assumption seems to be affirmed by the fact that your hat is from the same period as my one (early sixties???), because the liner, the sweat band imprints and the size tag all are identical.
    There's one big difference between the two hats: my hat does not have a trimmed brim, but a raw brim with a pencil curl.
    Oh, and it came in an 'ordinary' oval Stetson hat box, instead of a leather case...

    How about something with a tannish, golden color to it for a stylish contrast?
