    Glad to see old hats get the respect they deserve. I was watching that and thinking it would go to the sole bidder, i'm happy it went your way.

    That's the second oldest Dobbs soft hat I have ever seen. I believe Brad has the oldest, but this one is definitely within the first decade of the creation of Dobbs. I'm sure brad could shed some more light on it though. Fantastic catch!

    +1 What size is it? I probably passed because it was too small?

    Edit: I went and read his guide, and from what he says about the logo and address dating this hat should be from the 1915-1917 period

    It is too old and special to try to stretch to my 7 1/4 LO!

    I too bid on this and though I was disappointed I am happy to see it will be going to a good home. Congrats my friend! Great find and very nice! Cannot wait to see how it looks! :)

    I'm pretty sure if it was post Stetson it would say "Mallory by Stetson" no? Perhaps I am wrong. I wouldn't worry about it. :)

    Sorry to have been bidding against a fellow lounger. I actually thought about you when I saw it was sized at 7-12/! It should be here in a few days. Having sold my Stetson Murphy, I've been looking to fill in the grey void in my hat selection...
