    completely ridiculous .... completely

    must be the gold fiber rain cover

    it almost looks fake and by the seller in attempt to drive up prices ... like that one a couple weeks ago that "sold" for over $700 then mysteriously was reposted hours later with no bids

    if that 50's basic Whippet demanded that much I should be able to get $1,700.00 for my 40s vita felt right ?

    ... please ... this is just silly
  2. I couldn't agree more. That's just nuts.

    Holy crap!
    If this keeps up I'll never be able to afford a vintage Whippet unless I find one in a thrift store that doesn't have an internet connection.

  11. Think it might be silver?

  12. that is not so likely, but it appears to be nicely done, whatever it was made from. Unless that seller put some effort into that band - which seems unlikely - it does not appear to be tarnished or dull. As I fear - I might be foolish on this one.

    Those kind of hatbands move around a lot & act like a saw against the felt. I would never put one on any of my hats.

    John, if it's an older Mexican import it could be nickel silver plated. That may infact be what it is because it doesn't appear to be too shinny. Newer ones are usually sterling silver plated & look very shinny. Most country & western wear shops used to sell them & they were popular mostly with the line dancers & two step crowd.

    They will cut & wear into the brim.

    Yeah, that's me owning up to it but I seem reluctant to do so. Almost embarrassed.
  18. Can't wait to see it on you.

  19. Thank you, Hurricane Jack, appreciate the information, maybe it will save me from ruining a good hat.

    Fun Hat
    Remembering that I lacked a jaunty green hat for St. Patrick's Day, threw in a $15 bid on this stingy Knox, and surprisingly, won. I assumed it would've been sought by the hipster crowd, but they might not have recognized the brand.
