  1. Very true. I came for the hats, but I’ve stayed for the people.

    I've wanted an older Mayser for a while. The seller says it's from c. 1940. Plus it's Antilope. Plus the seller sent me an offer, and he accepted even less. Couldn't resist.
    What do you think, @steur and @mayserwegener ?

    Max, Great find! Possibly early to mid 1950s. Hard to see but "Echter Mayser" is on the sweatband. Needs some cleaning and steaming and should be good to go.

    Can't go wrong with an Echter Mayser antilope finish, Max. Good score!

  9. Am I missing something here? It doesn't even say "Whippet" on it. :rolleyes:

    Maybe tossing "Yellowstone" in there will attract a buyer. The most valuable part of these hats (the USNPS leather hat band) is nowhere to be found.

    A great hat to wear to a pic-a-nic.

    Found this listing. A bit of a stretch for truth-in-advertising! Purports to be a Model 1875 campaign hat (there isn't such a designation, as far as I know. It was model 1872 and then 1876, 1883, 1889, etc)

    In any case, a fairly decent 1950s Stetson but hardly the Indian Wars original the seller insists this is. I'm waiting for the 'private purchase' retort! Yours for the princely sum of $979!

    Well, it "is" post civil war, as the title suggests!

    That feeling you get when a seller rejects your offer, and then a week later you win the auction for 60 cents on the dollar of said offer:

    Here’s a deal for all the “hat petters” out there. You won’t want to pass this one up! 51E9C5C9-A8FE-4D54-A47A-2A45F9ADC2B6.jpeg
    Those rubbits are getting difficult to find.
