Purchased this on FB last night, a 3x OR, it wasn't a bargain per se but the seller says it was their friend's dad's hat and he never wore it. I can't wait until it gets here. Don't see too many 7 1/2 long ovals come up in this condition.

That's a fine get. I've only grabbed off the marketplace but it was a 7X CB OR I drove to Nashville to pick up. You'll enjoy that one.
Thank you! I hope it's as nice as advertised. I bought my other OR on FB also, it is probably a 60s 3X OR but not LO.

I hope to find a 7XCB someday.

I had been messaging the seller on this hat. You did not overpay. That’s a very nice 3X OR. Congrats!

I left the bidding on these two to other winners, but was trying to wrap my head around that fact that someone would hack up a sweat band this way to maybe make the hats fit. This must not have been done by the original owner as it seems that if you can afford a Rand's Custom you can afford to have it resized or a new sweat put in.

Nice. I like the bound and whipped edge…that doesn’t sound right.
