    There are price designations for many hat. I have a couple Mallory Tens, a Mallory Fifteen, a Stetson 25. I think Michael A has a sixteen-fifty. Like Jerad mentioned, it seems the 100 was introduced in the mid-50s.

    Here are some Knox Daniele, look. The first one is a Knox 100, my best hat, I think. Second, a Knox Forty, and third, a Knox Twenty.

    Two different Churchill Fiftys, and a Churchill One Hundred.
    As you can see from the Fiftys, the number refers to the price, or quality of the felt, not on the model.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    A MacLachlan Fifteen I just bought.
    I like to collect hats with different price points, to compare them, Daniele.
    Now I need a MacLachlan Fifty to compare with the Fifteen.
    Bowen told me he once saw a Stetson One Hundred and Fifty, but I doubt I will ever find it. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks Max for your answer, indeed answers with attached photographs of the various hats and their denomination in numbers.
    I would also like a comparison of you, because the photographs do not speak to me. I can say that I am attracted by the colors or the shape of a hat, but without knowing its "real" value of quality. I want to clarify that I buy hats "by eye" or for the curiosity that arouses me.
    We live in Europe that has a completely different production than in the United States and having been exporters we have also "copied" the abbreviations used by US producers to be recognizable on the market, but this, by us, does not mean anything. So I wait for your impressions hat by hat, considering you have them in your hands and head and you also have a number of European hats with which you can make comparisons.
    Thank you

    I guess these days, you would need to come out with at least a five-hundred for it to have any meaning.

    A one-hundred is a woolie.

    I will, Daniele. Some of the hats I showed are still in the US at my brother-in-law's. When I have them in my hands I will do a "ranking" of sorts.
    Meanwhile, I can tell you that the best, dreamy, softest, smooth, obedient felt is the Dobbs One Hundred's, followed by the Dobbs Fifty's.

    What is the difference between Stetson's Mode Edge and Selv Edge?

    Are both from the same era?

    The Dobbs Fifty was given to Al Werner, announcer for the '51 Yankees. I understand that each team member was given one.
    I would need someone more knowledgeable than myself to opine about the other two (@alanfgag where are you?), but I would think my two Dobbs One Hundred are from the same time period as the Fifty.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This Dobbs One Hundred was sold to me by a FL member. He told me he had it reblocked and altered.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    My other Dobbs One Hundred is still in Texas. I have to see if I find any other tags. This one has a leather case.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Can anyone tell me anything about this hat? Yes, it is a very poor picture.

    RM, that's a PDO Stetson Clear Nutria, and from what I can see, it's a Philadelphia hat. That smaller embossment on the left appears to be the Fray sweat trademark. Fray was a Stetson employee and the only one they ever allowed to apply for and receive a patent while employed there.
