    This one is a Tonak. Probably post 1980.

    EstherWeiss helped me get these two unblocked off white TONAK hat bodies. One is a velour which will be used for my wife's hat. The other one will likely be something for myself. ;)

    Thats good to hear. They're exactly the same or very similar to the body Esther used for my hat that's in customs...

    I can't figure it out. It looks like the sweatband was repaired. Does it say anything on the liner logo?

    Thanks for posting! It's rare to see any pre WWII B.B. Soft Felts regardless of size and condition.

    I'd take it, but it's not my size and I'm collecting other items. Fortunately the seller has a large selection.
