I have often wondered what happened to Timothy and his closet. Surely he didn’t sell all those hats? They were pretty darn pricey.
 
“Please don’t include the hat boxes to save on shipping”

Two giant boxes and one vintage hat shipping box (with a Fed-Ex label slapped on it) later I have six hats and four hat boxes I paid a lot in shipping for and all the boxes were damaged when I removed the stickers they stuck on both sides of each box.

Grumble …

I forgot a before pic on this one. The upper right corner of the lid shows the loss of the outer layer.

Uggh…. That Stratoliner box is cool.

At least it was in rough shape to begin with (the bottom was falling out), but it would still have displayed nicely without a big rectangle removed from the center of the logo. :(

Oh … and the third party shipper forgot to ship them for a month after I paid the shipping (they were languishing in their storeroom apparently).

Just bought this hat on another auction site.

Smithbuilt 7 5/8. Looks like the auctioneer had misspelt the name.

$25 CAD and some shipping, I think I did well.
I hope you got one of their better offerings. I recently took a chance on an inexpensive Smithbilt western from Shopgoodwill. It was made from wool of a grade that I would use to scrub my barbecue grill. :(.
It went straight to a local thrift store as a donation.
