    The 7X Vita? Excellent pick up. Look forward to your analysis. Glad I didn't cost you more.

    I’m a little concerned about the sweatband, but I think a heavy dose of Pecard’s will soften it up.

    You can find nice Vitas and nice 7XCBs in your size. This is the only hat displaying a conjunction of the two designations that I've ever seen. Maybe it will have some marks to help date it.

    Yes, as a mark on the wall for 7X CBs it is super. On the other hand, the stains probably won’t come out, which does limit its use. I’ll have to wait and see!

    I keep looking at the pics of the sweat and I’m worried about dry rot. I’ve been burned by these old boys before!

  5. I was watching it, wishing it was my size or even something close. It's worth every effort to try & save it as original.

    I just bought this beautiful Sisol. Is Sisol and Sisal the same thing? It's beautiful, whatever it is. Not as nice as the one I covet owned by Georg, AKA @Steinbockhase, but close.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I desperately wanted to but had to pass since I just bought two hats last week. Kind of surprised the listing was active as long as it was.

    Glad you got it. I was considering it too. I look forward to seeing it after you work with it. Congrats.

    I really wanted to pull the trigger on that, but the hat fund is pretty depleted.

    And it doesn't help I had a former member here - (cough)bobroberts(cough) - berating me to buy it.

    Thank you, Scott. I will keep looking for one as beautiful as Georg's. Just look at that one:[​IMG]

    I was about to, but I already have two Caxtons with the same color. It certainly was a good deal. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I just bought this one of Garrett's. My daughter, Alisa, kept asking for a Gay Prince like mine, and this one is pretty close. I think Ignacio cam buff out the moth nips. If I don't tell her about them afterwards, she might not even notice[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I just sniped this black MacLachlan, my favorite felt.
    I almost lost it! Now I know why I've lost a couple of others: sometimes there is a chronometer disparity of almost a minute and a half between the "bids and offers" screen and the "increase your maximum bid" screen.
    I ended up increasing my bid with just two seconds left. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
