    Might be worth a thread to collect the variations, if one doesn’t already exist. I have only a couple of Stetsons left from the 1950s but it seems there were a number of materials used for crown protection. The oilskin you show was a translucent vinyl, I think. Some of the very clear and crispy material might be cellophane rather than plastic. I expect there is not much difference in vintage between them. Did Stetson use a paper protector like Knox and Borsalino? Not sure if I’ve seen an example.

    FYI:
    Has anybody noticed this eBay.com seller yet? "themodelproject"
    Unfortunately they don't sell hats, but it is still nice to look at their "offers" :)
    No wonder they have so many eBay followers.
    Check it out and you will see what I mean:

    I had no idea that a baseball hat was worth that kind of money,17 hundred or something crazy like that.

    I agree. It's too small for me and I have one with the full 4".

    I wanted one Baku Straw hat. This seems like a nice one. I will take it to Ignacio to conform, and might ask him to put in a leather sweatband. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I had a few questions, but at the reasonable BIN price I figured I had to move fast if I wanted it. I’m guessing it’s a 1960s’ hat but I really don’t know. I’ll let you know my impressions when it gets here...maybe by the end of next week?

    That would be hard to resist for most of us.
