  2. Classic! You take care of her well. She gets one new hat and you qualify for two!

  3. My wife's antiquing runs toward jewelry and glass, particularly uranium glass. A few years ago, she began collecting these glass tomahawks, made by the Cambridge Glass Company of Cambridge, Ohio. She has a bunch of them, in various colors. She goes for little animal figurines, too.

    Thanks fellas. I like your attitude Red! (seems like it is about a 5 to 1 ratio of hats for me though)

  5. Couldn't pass it up, I love the color and I think it's a good buy. I paid a C-note delivered. Can't wait to get it. The photos are ebay. Thought I would run it by you folks and see what you think. Also hoping for information as to how old it might be, It's a Beaver Brand. Diamond in the rough?...

    Nice find Latigo. There are a few of those posted around the forum. You'll see them in different brandings, but they all fell under the Langenburg Hat Co / Beaver Brand family (Beaver, Lion, Thoroughbred, etc.). I have one that is currently living with Hurricane Jack that was branded Lion Hats. Haven't had my hands on it yet, so I can't speak to the quality. It was too small for me, but I couldn't pass it up at $20 either.

    I really like the color of yours. Congrats!
     
  10. @BobHufford Thanks Bob! I really like the color of yours too! I'm really into earth tones. $20.00! And I thought I was doing good....
    I can't wait to get it to see what kind of quality it is. I do know it's going to need some work. This picture shows the sweat and you can see that the sweat appears to be OK, but the reed looks like it's shot. A little beyond what I would attempt to do myself. (replace the reed).

    I was very happy to get it for $76. I've passed up a few in that range, but usually they are much higher. Seems like feathered hat bands hurt your sale value...

    @Latigo -- this is the similar sweatband on mine (that lives with Jack).

  15. I know...
    Feathered hat bands... it's something that... doesn't live here.
     
  16. @BobHufford Wow Bob it looks mint! At $20.00 you must be living right!

    Congrats on the Rand too.

    Thanks Latigo!

    If I was living right the hat would fit me. Just "collecting" it at this point (I have one or two like that).

    This came in today from fellow lounger @moontheloon :

    What a sweet hat! Portis Tissue Weight, grey, with medium violet undertones. I tried to crease this to a diamond and when I put it on my head it went right back to this c-crease. Soft, velvety felt; a joy to handle and mold... Thanks, Moon! My first thin ribbon fedora!

    looks great on you Doug
    enjoy it ... that is one hell of a hat
    Portis sure did it right

    ... and that crease always seemed to be what the hat wanted so I left it ... I'm sure with some steam and TLC she will take what you want ... that felt is wonderful to work with
