    Steve, Thanks! If I put the JHS "Superior" "Crystall Velour" in direct sunlight it would turn metallic like the flash photo.

    It's just fantastic to see how the wonderful workmanship on the velour felt is captured in all kinds of lighting, Steve. That super silver sheen is breathtaking.

    Steve, Thanks again! They are difficult to photograph. They also look different (compared to the photos) to my eye but that could be brain processing.

    Photos can never really capture the real, or is it the other way round [emoji4]. No matter what Steve, those pre war JHS's are truly outstanding and your eye for them and collection of them is so enviable.

    A joy to see these side by side and under different lighting conditions, Steve. Superb hats all. Thanks for posting these.

    Today i received 2 brown beauties from Peschel. These stingy brims from Peschel are hard to find. Great hats for little money i had to pay. Sometimes you have to be lucky!

    Congrats Pellie, two very nice looking Peschels. It is indeed a hat not often seen on the market. When one does come up, grab it. These two suit you very well indeed.
    I'd love to see more of the hat itself.

    Thanks, Steve. Once the hat arrived I was able to locate the G.A. of Dunn & Co on the liner and sweatband leading me to think this hat is earlier than originally thought. That and the JHS label seems to be a scalloped configuration as opposed to the squared labels on the post war Tonak.

    Thank you! I paid 10 euro's each. I think that's a bargain.
