I agree in thinking 40s as well. The entire hat screams hints from that decade.
Been reading pages of the Knox thread and the ovalized sixteenths tag can be found in both 50s and 40s hats. Matter of fact, my other Foxhound has that same tag and it’s from the 50s with a plastic liner tip. Posted some pics today in whaywt

Hello all.
NOOB to the forum, and wanted to get information from y'alls expertise.
I have listed my recently deceased Father-in-law's hat collection, (he was a rancher & rodeo clown in the 70's)

One of the items listed (before I realized what I had) is a Stetson One Hundred in size 7 with the original box.
After reading some of the comments here, apparently the really vintage One Hundreds had a suitcase hatbox & different label...mine has a round hatbox with a leather strap on it.

Can anybody tell me if this is as rare as I think it may be?
Vintage year? (the initials are from my wife's Great Uncle...so guessing 1950's?)

It's currently listed on EBay . My username is kmango if you want to look at the other pictures.

It looks late 50's to early 60's from what you've shown. It would get more money if it was a bit larger, unless you find someone who fits it. Ought to get between $500 to $800 or so, depending on how bad someone wants it. I wouldn't want to sell it for less than $600 or so, if it was mine. You'd get more bidders if you had it labelled properly as a One Hundred. I imagine it did originally come in a hat case, but not certain. Just speculating, but as late as this hat is, you might have the original box it came in, and Stetson may have quit putting them in hat cases.

Thanks.
Believe it or not, I had to delete the bid.
You're reply made me double check, and low & behold...it's actually size 7 1/4...not size 7
It's relisted as this...

Heck, that's my size! Might have to make a run at it! I was trying to see a photo of the size tag, but you didn't show it in any of the photos. That extra 1/4 in hat size guarantees you will get over $600 for it.

$450 is pricey for me, but you know how big of sucker I am for dove gray!
My 3rd Flagship, however, this one is the right color and near mint, or close enough I should say!
I put in a $400 offer but knew someone else would snatch up this rare mid 40s beauty so couldn’t stand waiting any longer went ahead and punched the BIN.
Please somebody, tell me me I did the right thing! :)
I’ve seen these go higher and not be as interesting a color, so maybe I shouldn’t fret too much.

“Flagship Bowler” Never seen one of those….

Beautiful! I was tempted, but I also already have two, and I was bidding for a BOP.
