    Steve, Thanks! I like it as much as a great hat find. By the way the art side is 14 cm X 7 cm / 4.5 inches X 2.75 inches.

    Aha ... I had my eye and bid on this one too. Nice to see it here again.
    BTW your eBay-ID appears for me as "i***n (335)"

    I don't go for wool-felt hats any more, but this Fraenkel looked nice enough.
    The felt is thinner and lighter than usual wool-felt and I always love a bonded-edge.
    According to the sweat imprint, I assume it was produced somewhere after 1958 into the 60s.

    Great find! I think the dating is correct. My recent S.J. Fraenkel was date stamped 1959 and your hat appears to be from the same time period.

    This little "Wildleder" Trilby in sage color has a nice and soft felt. I like the contrasting brim edge in dark green-brown.
    Unfortunately no tags and the liner logo is too dark to see anything behind the blurry cellophane.
    Probably from the 1960's.

    Two great trilbies. Colour, ribbon, and bind match and contrast are very eye catching. Both look good on you. Nice finds.

    This Stanton "Bogart" has a wonderful soft touch and nice color combination.
    Could be wrong, but the paper tag looks like it's from 80's or later.

    Very nice light sand brown colour with dark constrating ribbon and binding combo. Suits you very well. Tag does indeed seem to be 80s looking.

    Looks like a nice one, Georg. I like the colour combination. I tend to steer clear of these Stanton hats as they can be all over the place in quality, but that one looks like a fine hat.

    Picked this one up yesterday. Wegener Super with Special Finish in mid to dark grey. Raw edge brim at 6cm and crown 10cm at the center dent. I'm not overly fond of Wegener hats, but they do and did produce some very fine hats. I liked the look and colour of this one. The colour is called Dahlem.

    Looks great! I believe it was made by Tonak for F.W. Schneider Köln who own the Stanton mark (also Stetson Europe). I think the dating is correct.

    Stefan, Super find! I haven't seen one of these before. I agree about the color and look. R.W. Wegener also had great dressing work
