    Trolley cords go back decades before 1960.

    Dating Your Hat (A Place to Discuss the Age of Your Vintage Hat)

    It is 60s. They used that all black keyhole tag for a very short time between the common manila paper one and the squared-off black one.

    OTHER THAN eBAY Hats: Victories, Defeats, Gripes & Items of Interest

    Hmmm. Seems like some mixing and matching on that one. Maybe the hat was just added to the case later somehow? I'd need some really strong evidence that the 100 case belong to Truman, too. Seems like too many oddities on that. Not saying it is impossible, but it has some curious aspects, I...

    On that Truman hat, that was not made "for" Truman himself. It was made for his presidential library. Stetson also made them for Reagan's, Nixon's and and LBJ's libraries. I have one from both the Reagan and LBJ stores.

    Dating Your Hat (A Place to Discuss the Age of Your Vintage Hat)

    Seems similar to Stetson's style, though. Maybe Stetson was a contractor for Brill Brothers?

    STETSON 7x CLEAR BEAVER QUALITY

    By the 1970s, I wouldn't even know what "7X" even meant.

    Ebay Hats: Victories, Defeats, Gripes & Items of Interest

    Well, at least he didn't get your hopes up that the hat was in a nice Stetson box. I had just the opposite happen. I bought an auction of a Stetson where the seller mentioned the box and showed that it was a pristine box. Then he slathered it in tape and sent it without an outer box. Not only...

    Hey those are nice. Brand new Stetsonians. They are absolutely worth $60 apiece!!! At that size, you should be able to double your money on ebay, I'd say.

    Ebay Hats: Victories, Defeats, Gripes & Items of Interest

    I am glad the doc got them both. It kills my soul to sell these two rare items. But I am in bad financial shape right now and just have no choice but to sell. Wish I never had to because these two hats are amazing.

    “WTF’ Hats,” that are hard to believe...

    We're the ones to say because we're the ones buying them. Seems pretty simple to me.

    Thanks. I am in a bind and I'm afraid there's no help for it.

    The School of Hard Knox

    I am wrestling with that. As it is, I paid close to a grand for it in 2019. But when I bought it, it was only the hat. I added the case later when I found it. And with the case, the price is deeper, because the case is at least as rare as the hat, if not more so. I am leaning toward the $1,300...

    The School of Hard Knox

    I have a Knox 100 in an original Knox hard case for sale. It is a size 7-1/4. I am in some financial trouble, otherwise I would never, ever, EVER sell this... so, anyone interested? We all know how rare this is, so you know I am not interested in letting it go cheap. Size 7-1/4.
