    So I don't think this has been summed up in this thread but which American labels span which eras?

    I believe "United Hatters" is pre-34, and changed to "United Hatters Cap and Millenery Workers" after '34.

    So there was no variation in the UHCMW stamp thereafter?

    https://imgur.com/a/BfNHo It was pretty interesting seeing some more hats with the same union tag as my straw boater. It made me even happier that I saw that poster featuring a union boater.

    EDIT: After looking at many of the posts in this thread I also noticed that the band on some of the fedoras matches the band on my boater

    One of my hats has the post-1934 union tag inside but it has 2 numbers printed on it. I believe that every image I've seen in this thread only show 1 number. This tag has a small No. 6 to the right of the union bug, and a larger No. 82 in black ink on the top right of the label. I read that a number near the bug means the local number, but what would the second number be?

    I found this one on the back side of my Cavanaugh Edge. The size tag popped off and I haven't put it back on yet. (Guess I probably should, right??)

    My "Dunstatter" Derby (unknown manufacture) has the older style label. I had Mike Miller refurb the Derby and now it is a stand alone artifact. It shows the older style union label.

    Almost 3 years since last bump. Maybe someone has more to add now.
