    c.1930s Stetson "Standard Quality"

    You name it, make an offer.

    This hat is a beautiful shade of green with a matching color felt hat band. The brim has a raw edge treatment, and both sides of the crown have tiny vent holes in a ^ pattern

    There is staining throughout the felt, and the brim has some damage in one area.

    Behind the sweatband, one can find the original owners name, "Warren C. Johnson". After some research, I learned that Warren is a WWII veteran and was wounded in 1943. Sadly, he passed in 2008.

    the crown has a tip sticker which has come unglued in spots

    the sweatband is soft and supple

    tagged 7 1/4

    Brim: 2 1/2"
    Open crown: 5 1/4"
    Circumference: 23"

    I have too many irons in the fire right now. I think this would be a great candidate to send off to Art Fawcett, or another master hatter, and let him do his magic. I mean it would be a great kick around hat for everyday use.
